The UCONN Huskies and the Houston Cougars will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at TDECU Stadium.

ABOUT CONNECTICUT (2-2, 0-1 AAC): Shirreffs threw for 819 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed for another score. Noel Thomas Jr. (40 receptions, 388 yards, one TD) has nearly half of UConn’s catches (81) and receiving yards (861) after a 14-catch performance against Syracuse. The Huskies were stopped at the goal line in losses to Navy (as time expired) and Syracuse (late in the fourth quarter), and got late game-winning field goals from Bobby Puyol (5-of-5 in field goals and 10-of-10 on extra points) in their two wins.

ABOUT HOUSTON (4-0, 1-0): Ward (936 passing yards, five touchdowns and 113 rushing yards, three TDs) leads a balanced offense that’s averaging 44.8 points. Senior linebacker Steven Taylor (tied for second nationally with 5.5 total sacks) leads a unit that is ranked first in the nation in rushing defense (37 yards), fourth in scoring defense (10.5 points) and fifth in total defense (228.8 yards). The Cougars held six straight opponents to fewer than 100 rushing yards, including three straight (Texas State, 33; Cincinnati, 30; Lamar, 15) to 33 or fewer.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Cougars listed as 29-point favorites versus the Huskies, while the game’s total is sitting at 51.

Seventh-ranked Houston gets a chance to avenge its only loss from last year when it hosts Connecticut in an American Athletic Conference game Thursday night. Both starting quarterbacks missed the majority of last year’s meeting – a 20-17 UConn home victory- but return healthy for the rematch.

Houston’s Greg Ward Jr., who didn’t play at UConn because of an ankle injury until backup Kyle Postma was injured late in the fourth quarter, has won 17 straight as the Cougars’ starter. The Cougars, looking to begin 5-0 in back-to-back seasons for the first time in program history, recorded at least 40 points and 500 total yards in three straight games. Bryant Shirreffs, who left last year’s game with a concussion on the second series, helped the Huskies overcome slow starts in all four games. UConn has been outscored 31-0 in the first quarter this season before having all four games decided by seven or fewer points.

Houston was a 64-3 winner in its last match on the road against Bobcats. They covered the -31-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 67 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

UCONN lost its last outing, a 31-24 result against Orange on September 24. UCONN failed to cover in that game as a -3-point favorite, while the 55 combined points took the game UNDER the total.
