The home town favorites UH will be lead this year by head coach Dana Carl Holgorsen. As the Offensive Coordinator at the University of Houston Dana Holgorsen gained prominence and recognition as one of the most promising, up-and-coming offensive coaches in the country and his success running the Cougar offense would set the table for future coaching opportunities. During his two-year tenure with the Cougars, Holgorsen's offenses posted earth-shattering numbers, accounting for 563 yards of total offense per game, passing for 433.7 yards per game and totaling more than 42.2 points per game.
The Houston Chron.con recently noted this about Holgorsen, "Nobody said Dana Holgorsen's first season was going to be a breeze. And there are a lot of unknowns with so many new pieces in a defensive overhaul that will take time to come together. Cincinnati, UCF and Memphis are the class of the AAC. Lose all three of those games and there's no room for any slip-ups. Otherwise the Cougars' streak of six straight bowl appearances could be in jeopardy."
Enjoy this weekend of the start of college football season everybody.
