The Houston Cougars and Temple Owls face off on Saturday in an AAC college football showdown at Lincoln Financial Field. When these two teams faced off in 2019, Temple came away with the 59-49 victory. 

Houston comes into this game with a 9-1 record overall and it’s been the offense that has been impressive for them. In the last game against South Florida, Houston scored 54 points and even though the defense struggled they still came away with the victory. Houston is averaging 39.1 points while the defense is giving up 22.2 points per game. Under center for Houston is Clayton Tune who has thrown for 2,224 yards, 19 touchdowns, and six interceptions. Allen McCaskill has also been strong on the ground rushing for 603 yards and 12 touchdowns. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Temple Owls who sit with a 3-6 record overall and they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against East Carolina, the offense scored only three points, and over the last four games, they have scored only 27 points total. Temple is averaging 18.2 points while their defense is giving up 36.8 points per game. One big issue for the offense has been moving the ball through the air. In the last game, D’Wan Mathis threw for 37 yards and Justin Lynch threw for 20 yards. If Temple wants any chance to win this game, they are going to need to find a way to move the ball through the air.

Houston is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games against a team with a losing record. Temple is 15-6 against the spread in their last 21 games played in November. The over is 4-0 in Houston’s last four road games. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings. 

Houston is going to score, but I think Temple is going to really struggle to move the ball again. When these two teams face off the under has been a solid play, and it’s going to be no different in this game. Look for the under to cash.
