No. 10 Houston (10-0, overall, 6-0 in C-USA) hosts longtime rival SMU (6-4, 4-2) on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. CT in a nationally televised game on FSN. Our announcers preview the matchup.

Can anyone slow down the Houston offensive machine? That's the question as the Coogs continue their quest for an undefeated season and a BCS bid. Houston quarterback Case Keenum's assault on the NCAA record book is a good enough reason to watch this game. Houston scored 73 points in the last three quarters vs. Tulane last week. SMU has sputtered recently, dropping three of its last four. Ponies coach June Jones is one of the developers of the spread offense that Houston is running so smoothly. SMU better get its offense in gear this week or they will look like the last 10 teams that Houston has trampled.

The word "respect" will be heavily on display this week. On the SMU sideline is June Jones, the "dean" of the modern day spread offense who has coached many stellar quarterbacks. Entering this season, he had coached the NCAA's all-time passing leader Timmy Chang at Hawaii. Now, as a brilliant Houston Cougar career nears its end, quarterback Case Keenum is re-writing the all-time NCAA passing records and has led his team to its first ever 10-0 start. Both Jones and Keenum know the benefits of a strong passing game and can admire each other's work. And with such, I expect an aerial show on Saturday that will have NASA on alert.

If the past is any indicator of the future, get ready for an offensive explosion Saturday in Houston. Cougar quarterback Case Keenum continues to re-write the record books and you know SMU head coach June Jones is always up for a challenge. Defenders beware.
BEST OF MAXIM
Houston quarterback Case Keenum is the all-time FBS leader in total yards, passing yards and passing touchdowns, but the Cougars have faced some of the worst defenses in the country this season. SMU will be the Cougar's biggest test of the year, coming in with the second-ranked defense in C-USA. Will the Mustangs' D be able to quiet the Houston hype?
