The Houston Cougars are quietly having a pretty good season. After Thursday night's win over USF the team has improved to 7-1 overall and 4-0 in conference play. I'd say there is a chance they could crack the top 25 this week, but if not with a win against No. 23 UCF next week they will definitely be in.
In the meantime their opponents will have images...

The Houston Cougars have quietly become a pretty good team. With the No. 17 offense in the nation leading the way the Cougars have gotten off to a 6-1 start with their only loss being a one pointer to another good team (BYU). Thursday the nation will get a chance to watch these guys when they take on South Florida.
So with the team going on national television there is not a...
When it comes to keeping the offense out of the end zone a defense has to do what it has to do sometimes. If that means it needs to throw up in order to distract the ball carrier (because who wants to get tackled in that mess) than so be it.
That's why Houston's safety was returning his breakfast to nature on the field (upper right corner of the GIF).

In an attempt to keep up with the rest of the teams that keep unveiling new uniforms, the Houston Cougars unveiled the four helmets that they will wear next year (with the possibility of adding more). These helmets look pretty good and there is certainly plenty of chrome involved. You have to wonder if there will be any changes to their jerseys to match these new helmets.
