(6) Houston (2 - 0) 31 @ Cincinnati (2 - 0) 17: After a terrific start to the season, Houston hits the road for their initial American Conference game. They'll have starting quarterback Greg Ward, Jr. available after he missed Saturday's game against Lamar with a shoulder injury. They still defeated FCS Lamar 42 - 0, but his presence will be needed against Cincinnati. The Bearcats are no pushover, but with a healthy Ward, I'm not sure there aren't more than five or six FBS teams capable of shutting down the Cougars.
(21) Baylor (2 - 0) 40 @ Rice (0 - 2) 13: Rice hasn't played well in both losses and it isn't likely to get much better with the Bears coming to town. Baylor is a little under the radar, at least on the football field, but Jim Grobe has them focused on football and they shouldn't have much trouble with the Owls.
