2022 Houston Cougars Football Predictions and Betting Odds

Houston really turned it around in 2021, going 12-2 and winning 11 straight after losing the season opener to Texas Tech. With key players returning, like quarterback Clayton Tune and wide receiver Nathaniel Dell, in 2022, the Cougars could repeat last year’s success. A big factor to that success was Houston’s defense. They ranked 18th in Defensive SP+ and allowed 318 yards per game in 2021. Bringing back 6 starters from that D is huge and could limit teams to under 20 points per game. Moving to the Big 12 next season will be fun, and it will be even better if they have a strong last dance in the AAC. With the talent, coaching, and favorable schedule, this season may be very special for Cougars.
