Previewing Houston-Arizona by the numbers

The Cougars’ preseason ranking, per Bill Connelly’s S&P+, was 49. Bill’s preseason preview does a great job of showing exactly why Houston is going to be dangerous. Houston quarterback Kyle Allen is a former five-star recruit. Senior wider receiver Linell Bonner is on the 2017 Biletnikoff Award Watch List after finishing fifth in the nation in receptions last season. And sophomore (?!?!) defensive lineman Ed Oliver is arguably the best college football player in the country.

For reference, the Wildcats’ preseason S&P+ ranking was 68. Houston is simply more talented than Arizona. This is a problem.

Houston is more talented.
Huh? Going back to 2013 AU has had better recruiting classes than UH with notable exception of 2016 when we came in at 36 and UA at 48 per 247 Sports composite rankings.

And though there are ways the Wildcats can pull off a win (namely, rushing for 500 yards yet again), the Cougars are a serious threat to steal a win in Tucson.
LMAO!!! if that’s the case, they are doomed. Who does he think UA is…Navy?!
