Houston vs Cincinnati 2021 Preview

The Cougars are coming off a 45-17 beat down of Connecticut last week. Houston quarterback Clayton Tune went 21-30 for 301 yards and four touchdowns in the win, while wide receivers Jake Herslow and Jeremy Singleton each had 100+ yard games. Houston racked up 472 total yards of offense, and the defense did its part, as well, holding the Huskies to just 82 rushing yards and 3.6 yards per play.

Now, Houston heads to Nippert Stadium for the biggest game of its season.

“I’m not gonna lie — I wish this was at a neutral site. They’re pretty good at home,” Houston head coach Dana Holgorsen said this week, via SB Nation. “They hadn’t lost there in a while but it’s a big challenge. Outstanding football team, well coached, they have great senior leadership.”

On the other side, the Bearcats just won their 12th game in a row last week when they beat up on East Carolina, 35-13. Cincinnati QB Desmond Ridder completed 17 of 28 passes for 301 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, and the defense dominated yet again, holding East Carolina to 54 yards on the ground all game.

It all comes down to this for both teams, and Ridder is excited.

“It’s something we’ve been striving for since I’ve got here,” Ridder said. “It’s something Coach Fick (Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell) has preached since he got here. A national championship is on the minds of the big dogs. I’m not sure how much they care about a conference championship, but it’s one of the biggest things in our program.”

The Bearcats are putting up 39.6 points a game on offense, and they’re allowing 15.8 points a game on defense, making them one of the most well-rounded teams in the nation. The Cougars are a complete team, as well, averaging 38.8 points a game on offense while surrendering 19.8 points a game on ‘D.’

“We’ve had one goal and one objective when we walked in the door here five years ago, and it hasn’t changed. And it’s always been to play for championships,” Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell said, adding: “Houston is as well-balanced and complete a football team as we’ve played all year. We’ve got a challenge ahead of us.”
