2015 Recap:  13-1.  The Houston Cougars had a great year in Tom Herman’s first season.  They won a conference championship and beat Florida State in a bowl game.   A three point loss at UConn was all that stood between the Cougars crashing the College Football Playoff in 2015.

Greg Ward is back and should guide the Cougars to another big season.  Houston has it’s Super Bowl in week 1 as they play Oklahoma at NRG Stadium in Houston.  A win there could spark them to run the table.
