2023 Week 4 Game Preview: Sam Houston Bearkats @ Houston Cougars

The FBS expanded from 131 to 133 this year, welcoming in a pair of FCS newcomers in Jacksonville State and Sam Houston. While Jacksonville State notched a pair of victories already, the Bearkats are on a mission to celebrate their first triumph since the upgrade.

Sam Houston (0-2, 0-0 CUSA) saw an incredibly early bye in Week 3 after facing a pair of difficult non-conference opponents in Air Force and BYU. While the Bearkats have yet to record a touchdown this season, they played stellar defensive outings against both 3-0 squads, limiting them to a combined 27 points.
