Betting Houston vs. Army Courtesy of BookMaker.eu

It’s not a total disaster and the Cougars do have some talented players on their side that will make this game one of the better bowls. While the Cougars defense was bad, the offense was able to rack up yards and points relatively easily. The group suffered a big blow when quarterback D’Eriq King was lost, but new starter Clayton Tune showed glimpses in his brief time throwing for 565 yards and seven touchdowns.

And with additional time to prepare, the Cougars need that aspect of their game working to have a chance. They won’t have the ball that often with Army’s ability to chew up clock and convert third downs, so scoring when they do have it is imperative. And it’s not like the Cougars haven’t faced the triple option before. They face Navy every season and should at least have an idea of what’s coming. Stopping it is an entirely different matter, and one the Cougars won’t figure out.
