Bruce Feldman’s preseason Top 25: The best teams in college football before Week 1

_QB Greg Ward is back to run the offense and talented Texas running back transfer Duke Catalon should give the Houston attack a new dimension. In Chance Allen, UH has one stud at receiver, although I think they’ll miss the play-making of slot wide receiver Demarcus Ayers (98 catches, 1,222 yards). The D-line looks excellent with true freshman DT Ed Oliver ready to emerge as a star there. _

They lost some good players in the secondary, but there’s still plenty of athleticism back there. UH has a big opener against Oklahoma and gets a visit from a talented Louisville team in November. I think they’re quite a bit better than anyone else in the AAC. Photo: Bob Levey
