2016 Houston Cougars Football Tickets
Houston Cougars tickets took the college football world by storm in 2015, posting a 13-1 records and winning the American Athletic Conference championship before trouncing #9 Florida State in the Peach Bowl. Lest you believe those wins came against less than formidable opponents, try 34-31 over Louisville, 35-34 over #21 Memphis, and the aforementioned victory over the Top 10 ranked Seminoles. Head Coach Tom Herman has turned this team around and thrust the Cougars into the national spotlight. Houston is poised to take things another step forward in 2016 and make Houston Cougars tickets as bankable as any in the country.
Great teams have great quarterbacks and the Cougars are no exception. Greg Ward gives opponents fits. In 2015 he passed for over 2,000 yards and 17 touchdowns and when the pass wasn’t there he gained ground the old fashioned way, rushing for 20 touchdowns and 1,108 yards. He’ll beat you with his arm or his feet and he’ll get the best portion of his receivers back, including Chance Allen, who pulled in 56 catches and 6 touchdowns. Herman likes young legs and apparently, transfers. 2016 will see the debut of Duke Catalon as running back, and expectations are high for an improved running game.
If you can’t play defense, you can’t win football games. The Houston Cougars play defense, finishing in the Top 10 against the rush and Top 20 in scoring. They also return most of their starters along the line. If there’s a challenge, it’s in the secondary, where Brandon Wilson at corner is leading a group of freshman and sophomores, with only junior Howard Wilson returning from last season’s turnover machine.
2016 Houston Cougars Football Schedule
It’s difficult to top a 13-1 season but Herman and the Cougars have something to prove. They can start shedding doubters from Game 1, when they meet up with a very tough Oklahoma Sooners team Sept. 3rd. The home schedule includes Lamar, UConn, Tulsa, UCF, Tulane, and Louisville. The road won’t be easy either, with Cincinnati, Texas State, Navy, SMU, Memphis all looking to knock off the reigning AAC Champions. Can Houston repeat and end up playing in a bowl game on New Years? Yes they can and Houston Cougars tickets will take you along for the ride if you get them now.
