The Houston Cougars and Tulsa Golden Hurricane face off on Friday in a Week 5 college football showdown at Chapman Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2019, Houston came away with the 24-14 victory. 

Houston opened up their season with a loss against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, but since that point, they have won three straight games. In the last game against Navy, Houston had to outscore them 14-3 in the 4th quarter to come away with the eight-point victory. Houston is averaging 34.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 16.25 points per game. Under center for Houston is Clayton Tune who has thrown for 729 yards, five touchdowns, and five interceptions. In the backfield, Houston is led by Alton McCaskill who has rushed 51 times for 233 yards and four touchdowns. 

On the other side of this matchup is Tulsa Golden Hurricane who have been competitive this season but they only have one win. Tulsa lost to UC Davis by two points, Oklahoma State by five points, and Ohio State by 21 points. In the last game, Tulsa finally picked up their first win beating Arkansas State 41-34. Tulsa is averaging 25.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 30.5 points. Under center for Tulsa is Davis Brin and he has thrown for 1,208 yards, five touchdowns, and five interceptions. In this game, Tulsa needs the defense to lockdown, and to try and make this low scoring.
