The UCF Knights and the Houston Cougars will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at TDECU Stadium.

ABOUT UCF (4-3, 2-1): Freshman McKenzie Milton (960 passing yards, eight touchdowns, two interceptions) improved to 2-2 as the Knights’ starter after throwing a career-high 317 yards and three touchdowns at Connecticut. Senior Dontravious Wilson has rushed for 371 yards and seven touchdowns, while Milton has plenty of options in the passing game. Tre’Quan Smith leads the team with 23 catches for 360 yards and three scores, tight end Jordan Akins (15 catches, 278 yards, two TDs) is a steady target and freshman Dredrick Snelson (eight catches, 107 yards, TD) is emerging as a threat.

ABOUT HOUSTON (6-2, 3-2): Greg Ward Jr. has thrown for 2,179 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions, and he ranks fourth nationally with 370.9 yards per game, but the Houston offense has eight turnovers in its past three games. Running back Duke Catalon (279 rushing yards, TD) had 120 total yards versus the Mustangs after missing three games with a concussion. The Cougars are still ranked 13th nationally in total defense (312.1 yards) despite giving up 115 points and 1,247 yards in the past three weeks.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Cougars listed as 9½-point favorites versus the Knights, while the game’s total is sitting at 59.

No. 24 Houston hopes to regain its focus as it starts a three-game homestand Saturday against UCF. The pressure to make the College Football Playoff and rumors of coach Tom Herman’s coaching future combined with two early turnovers against SMU last week proved to be too much for the Cougars to overcome.

“I really do sense (that) we’ve got a lot of perfectionists on this team and a lot of guys that want to do right,” Herman told the media Monday. “When things start to go wrong, we tense up and get apprehensive and we start playing outside of ourselves and we lose focus.” Herman said his team – which still has the American Athletic Conference’s best defense – will focus on going 1-0 instead of looking at the big picture. The Knights enter the weekend having claimed three of four, with a last-second loss to Temple spoiling a win streak. UCF has won three straight road games, averaging 41.3 points in those victories.

In their last action, Houston was a 38-16 loser on the road against Mustangs. They failed to cover the -22.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (54) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

UCF was a 24-16 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Huskies. They covered the -4-point spread as favorites, while the total score (40) made winners of UNDER bettors.
