Date: opened Houston HC Tom Herman as the favorite to become LSU's next coach.

Herman is +100, while Florida State's Jimbo Fisher is +250. Rounding out the top five are Texas Tech's Kliff Kingsbury (+1400), TCU's Gary Patterson (+1500) and Louisville's Bobby Petrino (+1700). Les Miles was fired following LSU's last-second loss to Auburn.

Houston senior QB Greg Ward Jr. completed 20-of-26 passes for 289 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for an additional score in Saturday's 64-3 win over Texas State.

The Cougars didn't need Ward to go superhero in this one, as they cruised to an easy win. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound senior has thrown for 936 yards with a 5/2 TD/INT ratio in three games. He has also rushed for 113 yards and three touchdowns. While these numbers are certainly respectable, we have yet to see him truly put it all together for a monster statistical showing. He will try to notch one of those against UConn on Thursday.

Former Baylor freshman transfer WR Tren'Davian Dickson is no longer part of the Houston football program.

Beat writer Joseph Duarte reports Houston "had been waiting for an answer on a waiver request for Dickson," so we aren't sure where this leaves Dickson moving forward. He originally enrolled at Baylor before electing to leave following the sexual assault scandal at that school. He was viewed as a four-star recruit.
Sep 21 - 9:02 AM

Houston redshirt junior WR Linell Bonner caught eight passes for 119 yards in Thursday's 40-16 win over Cincinnati.

No touchdowns for Bonner, but he led the Cougars in both receptions and receiving yardage while averaging 14.9 yards per catch. His long haul went for 26 yards. While the 6-foot, 202-pounder has yet to score this season, he might be worth keeping an eye on in the coming weeks. Through the first three games of the 2016 campaign, Bonner has caught 15 passes for 228 yards. He is well on his way to surpassing the 25 catches for 327 yards he recorded a year ago.
Sep 16 - 1:56 PM

Houston redshirt sophomore RB Duke Catalon (ankle) rushed for 67 yards on 16 carries in Thursday's 40-16 win over Cincinnati.

Catalon entered the game nursing an ankle injury. Whether that hampered him at all is unknown, but it was a modest rushing evening for the 5-foot-10, 195-pound redshirt sophomore regardless. He averaged 4.2 YPC with a long run of 12 yards. The Texas transfer has yet to truly bust out, but has turned in quietly respectable performances in each of his two games played (he sat out against Lamar due to the ankle sprained). In addition to his 67 yards against Cincinnati on Thursday, he rushed for 88 in the season-opener against Oklahoma.
Sep 16 - 1:25 PM

Houston redshirt senior WR Chance Allen caught five passes for 94 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 40-16 win over Cincinnati.

Allen hauled in a beautifully thrown deep ball from Greg Ward Jr. for a 39-yard touchdown catch with eight minutes remaining in the first quarter. That was his long catch on the evening. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound redshirt senior averaged 18.8 yards per reception in the victory. Through three games this season, Allen has caught eight passes for 129 yards. Thursday's touchdown was his first of the season. A year ago, he caught 56 passes for 752 yards and six touchdowns.
Sep 15 - 11:32 PM

Houston senior QB Greg Ward Jr. was up-and-down in Thursday's 40-16 win over Cincinnati, completing 24-of-36 passes for 326 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

In a sloppy game for Houston, Ward was inconsistent in his passing with the two interceptions. He wasn't much better on the ground, averaging just 2.8 YPC. On volume, he racked up 73 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. Those 26 carries made for a career-high in rushing attempts, despite the fact that Ward is battling through a minor injury to his throwing shoulder (he sat out last Saturday's win over Lamar to rest the bum wing). Through his two games played, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound star has passed for 647 yards with a 3/2 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 74 yards and two touchdowns. He had just one rushing yard against Oklahoma in the season-opener. The Cougars will take on Texas State in a road date on September 24.
Sep 15 - 11:14 PM

Houston junior CB Brandon Wilson has returned to action against Cincinnati after briefly exiting for the locker room in the first half.

Wilson was checked out by trainers early in the second quarter of Thursday's game against the Bearcats and jogged somewhat gingerly to the locker room. Looks like that was nothing serious. Good for the Cougars, too, as the 5-foot-11, 200-pounder already has a 54-yard kick return to his name in the contest.
Sep 15 - 9:49 PM

Houston junior CB Brandon Wilson exited Thursday's game against Cincinnati in the second quarter due to a possible left ankle injury.

Wilson was already dealing with a lower leg contusion entering Thursday's game. Prior to leaving the contest, the speedy 5-foot-11, 200-pound junior showed off his moves on a 54-yard kick return. Following that fantastic run-back, he was checked out on the sidelines by trainers before trotting off to the locker room in gingerly fashion.
Sep 15 - 8:30 PM

Houston redshirt sophomore RB Duke Catalon (ankle) is expected to play in Thursday's game against Cincinnati.

"[Catalon] has to fight through it," said HC Tom Herman. After rushing for 88 yards on 22 carries against Oklahoma in the Cougars' surprise season-opening win, the 5-foot-10, 195-pounder was forced to sit out last weekend's contest with Lamar with the ankle sprain. Herman indicated that the former Longhorn still feels sore, but it looks like soreness alone won't be enough to keep him from suiting up for Thursday night's showdown with the Bearcats.
Sep 15 - 2:42 PM

Houston senior QB Greg Ward was cleared to return for Thursday's game against Cincinnati.

A minor injury to his throwing shoulder kept Ward out of Houston's 42-0 victory over Lamar last weekend. Ward returned to practices Sunday night. "I'm feeling better than I did. I continue to feel better every day," Ward said. Ward added that there is "no doubt" he can play without limitations against the Bearcats.

Houston freshman RB Mulbah Car had 20 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-0 win over Lamar.

Duke Catalon was held out of the game for reasons that weren't immediately clear to us. QB Greg Ward skipped this one with a shoulder injury, and it's possible the coaching staff just held Catalon out to save him for the meat of the schedule.
Sep 10 - 6:51 PM

Houston senior QB Greg Ward will not play against Lamar, according to SI's Pete Thamel.

Ward underwent an MRI on his throwing shoulder after last weekend's win over Oklahoma for precautionary purposes, so likely chalk this absence up to rest rather than injury. Redshirt junior Kyle Postma will start at quarterback in Ward's place, his second career start. Thamel adds Ward is expected to return Thursday against Cincinnati.

Houston senior QB Greg Ward (shoulder) might not be able to play against Lamar on Saturday.

While Ward underwent a weekend MRI that revealed no structural damage in his right (throwing) shoulder, he has been held out of practice this week. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder also received a shot in the shoulder in an attempt to rev up his rehab. There might not be a good time for your starting quarterback to come down with a shoulder injury, but if there is one, it would be right now for the Cougars. They play Lamar this weekend, followed by contests against Cincinnati, Texas State and UConn. A fine stretch to get Ward healed up right. Junior Kyle Potsma figures to fill in for him if he is unable to play on Saturday.
Sep 8 - 12:41 PM

An MRI on Houston senior QB Greg Ward Jr.'s throwing shoulder revealed "no structural damage," according to HC Tom Herman.

Ward missed Sunday's practice but "felt a lot better" on Monday, per Herman, and is expected to return to practice no later than Wednesday. Ward threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday to help No. 15 Houston upend No. 3 Oklahoma 33-23 at NRG Stadium. He's now 20-2 as a starting quarterback. Houston gets Lamar at home on Saturday.
