2021 Week 4 Preview: Navy Midshipmen @ Houston Cougars

Houston (-20) ESPN FPI: Houston has 97.0% chance to win. Last meeting: Houston 37, Navy 21 — October 24, 2020. Playing host duties this Saturday, Houston (2-1) is gifted with an opportunity to record its best start of the Dana Holgorsen era en route to a 1-0 record in AAC play. The Cougars have played five excellent halves of football through three games. Scrap the 31-0 result in the second half of Texas Tech game, Houston is outscoring opponents 110-14 this season. Speaking of lopsided deficits, Navy has been on the wrong end of multiple blowouts. The Midshipmen are currently winless after dropping their first two by a collective 72-10 score. There’s a chance to right the ship this Saturday after coming off a much-needed early bye week.

In the final round, the Columbia team took on the USC team and won. Each team member received $125,000 to put toward their education. Parents Sujoy and Romi, along with friends and family, cheered on the team from Houston. Shomik said his experience participating on the Quiz Bowl teams for SJS as well as TH Rogers during middle school was helpful through the competition.
