Houston comes into this game with two banged up quarterbacks: starter Greg Ward Jr. and backup Kyle Postma. Ward (ankle) is warming up with the first team offense in pregame 7-on-7. Leading rusher Kenneth Farrow is not dressed out. It appears he won't play, which is a big blow for Houston's running game.

Rooting interest today for Notre Dame: Navy over Houston, TCU over Baylor, Nebraska over Iowa. Committee loves Navy, which is ND's best win to date. If Mids win today and Temple wins Saturday, ND will have wins against both teams in AAC title game. Baylor loss eliminates Bears from Big 12 title contention and the possibility of jumping ND for playoff spot. Iowa loss would make it tough for Hawkeyes to make Playoff even if they beat MSU/OSU/Mich in Big Ten title game.

ICYMI: Texas Tech gets tricky for TD

The highest ranked Group of 5 team, No. 15 Navy (9-1), is here at TDECU Stadium in Houston for a big game against the 10-1 Cougars. Much at stake for both teams: the winner wins the American Athletic Conference's West Division and will host the conference championship game.

Rittenberg: Nkemdiche's impact

Robert Nkemdiche might never win an SEC or national title. Still, because he chose to play for Ole Miss and changed the way recruits view the program, the Rebels might win one soon. New and fresh

Daymon Gardner

How did he hold on to that?

UCF may have finished the season 0-12, but you can't blame WR Justin Holman, who made the catch and did a full flip in the air before landing.
