One person who isn’t taking Houston lightly is Luke Fickell.
The Cincinnati Bearcats’ head football coach noted the pluck with which Houston played against UC last season despite missing their top two quarterbacks.
In his weekly presser, Fickell cited Houston’s talent across the board, particularly in their receiving corps. He described Houston’s receivers as being as talented as any group in the AAC.
“They are every bit as good as anyone we’ve faced,” Fickell said of the 2-2 Cougars, who have one of the nation’s most effective passing offenses.
