Take Houston to cover. The Houston Cougars are finally going to play a football game in 2020. They will be facing a Tulane team that is 2-1 on the season. Tulane really likes to run the ball and they do do it well but they will be without their best running back in Spears. They are considered to be deep at the RB position but there is no doubt they will miss him. Part of the reason Tulane is so reliant on the run is due to their poor QB play. They run a dual QB system and combined they complete less than 44% of their passes. Houston may have been poor defensively last year but I expect them to be better this year. They will stack the line and force Tulane to pass. The Houston offense should be very good and able to move the ball and score against Tulane. I like Houston's QB Tune and he has now had another year in Dana Holgorsen's system. Houston gets us the cover.
