Army-Houston stat comparison

Houston Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:

Houston has an excellent passing game in their freshmen signal caller Kevin Kolb. He has thrown 2078 yards for 17 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions. The Cougars also have a trio of dangerous recievers in Vincent Marshall, Brandon Middleton and Leonard Gibson who have a combined average of 183 recieving yards per game.

Weaknesses:

The Cougars give up over 425 total yards a game compared to Army's 450 yards per game. This should be an offensive battle much like the one last year.
