Seen From Both Sides, Lew Perkins Can’t Predict What Big 12 Will Do
“You look at the other schools. Houston is interesting. The Texas schools want them, but they don’t want them. They kept them out a long time. They’ve also got things going down there. They’re going to have trouble keeping them out. BYU? Who knows? To me, they’re like Notre Dame. Stay away from them. Memphis. They’re out already. Cincinnati? Who can say? There’s no consensus. So why not Connecticut?”
Big 12 expansion candidate tracker: Week 3
Team of the week: Houston
I promise we’re not going to give this honor to the Cougars every single week. But the way they responded in the fourth quarter of a tight road game at Cincinnati, with a 28-point run for a 40-16 win, was certainly impressive. Greg Ward Jr. showed off his toughness and his defense had his back with back-to-back pick-sixes to finish the job. Great hard-earned win that further bolstered the respect UH is earning nationally.
Cougars an intriguing match up for several reasons
When it comes to the topic of Big 12 expansion as a whole, Holgorsen reiterated that he is in support of the league moving to 12 teams and implementing a championship game but deferred any specific schools he would like to see added to the conference to the presidents and commissioner.
