If the Houston - Cincinnati Jan. 23rd game is postponed, Coach Sampson mentions there’s a possibility Houston will play the Temple Owls instead. He says a few contingencies are being discussed; but, he does believe Houston will have a game on January 23.
The scheduling situation this season is constantly evolving; and, a few AAC coaches are a little concerned about their NET ranking.
