    13. Houston Cougars
    2021 record: 12-2 (8-0 AAC)
    Starters expected to return: 7 offense, 6 defense, 1 special teams
    Key starters expected to leave: G Keenan Murphy, C Kody Russey, OT Dennis Bardwell, CB/KR Marcus Jones, DT Logan Hall, DE David Anenih, LB Deontay Anderson, CB Damarion Williams, WR Jake Herslow
    Key additions: WR Matthew Golden, WR Brice Johnson, OL Demetrius Hunter, CB Moses Alexander, DE Nadame Tucker, DT Amipeleasi Lange

    Outlook: After winning 12 games for only the third time in school history, the Cougars will again be among the AAC favorites in 2022, if not the favorite. There are plenty of pieces coming back on offense, including quarterback Clayton Tune, RB Alton McCaskill and receiver Nathaniel Dell. The offensive line needs to play better and Dell needs help on the perimeter. Houston's "Third Ward" defense is what has fueled its resurgence under Dana Holgorsen, and the Cougars are fortunate coordinator Doug Belk is sticking around after drawing interest from a handful of Power 5 programs. Jones' big-play capabilities on kick returns and in the secondary will be sorely missed.

    Former Samford junior LB Trimarcus Cheeks transferred to Houston.
    Cheeks (6'2"/222) was the second leading tackler on his team in 2021, and his 2019 season saw him selected to a few All-Freshman teams. He's got the potential to make a difference for the Cougars despite the jump to the FBS for Cheeks.

    UH ideally has 2-3 years of being very good at football… if they do that, they will surprise with the quality of recruits they start getting… the problem is their head coach doesn’t work as hard as other coaches, especially when it comes to recruiting.
