The Tulane Green Wave are on the road for a clash with the Houston Cougars.  Tulane finished the 2019 season with a record of (7-6), while Houston went (4-8). The two teams matchup last season, as Tulane came away with a 38-31 home victory.  Let’s take a closer look at both programs.  Get College Football predictions at Pick Dawgz.

Tulane will be looking to impress the college football world this season, as their projected win total is set at 5.5 wins.  Tulane will be looking for help at quarterback, as quarterback Justin McMillan was a senior last season.  Tulane will be looking to running back Amare Jones to help stabilize the run game, as he rushed for nearly 375 yards as a backup last year.  Tulane has a touch schedule this year and it is uncertain how the team will respond to new skilled position players at quarterback, running back, and wide receiver.  For more on Tulane, check out the team preview.

Houston is in a different boat than Tulane, as the Cougars did not have a lot of success during the 2019 campaign.  However, the offense returns their main skilled players.  These players consist of: Clayton Tune, Kyle Porter, and Marquez Stevenson.  All three players gained valuable experience during the 2019 season. Tune passed for over 1,500 yards, while Porter rushed for 616 yards.  Stevenson reeled in 9 touchdown receptions, while adding 907 yards receiving for the year.  The defense is an area that has to get better if Houston wants to secure a spot in a 2020 bowl game.  The defense allowed an average of 34 points per contest last season.  For more on Houston, check out the team preview. 

Houston 2020 Win Total - College Football Pick and Prediction

Overview: This game will be at TDECU Stadium, home to the Houston program, which will help the Cougars in attempting to secure an American Athletic Conference win.  Tulane finished the 2019 season with a better record than Houston, but this season looks as if that script could be flipped.  Tulane will be looking for players to step up this season, while that could happen, the amount of road wins could be far and few between.  I’m going to give coach Dana Holgorsen and the Cougars the cover in this one, as Houston should make a bowl game this year, as Tulane regresses from the 2019 season.
