UH’s defense will have ‘hands full’ against BYU’s offense

The challenges keep coming and the Houston football team is officially in the gauntlet of a season after defeating Tulane last Thursday as No. 14 BYU enters TDECU Stadium undefeated and will provide an early test on just how good UH’s defense truly is.

Houston had a dominant performance against Tulane, holding the Green Wave’s offense to only 211 total yards, but head coach Dana Holgorsen knows that BYU will be a different puzzle to solve.

“I’m proud to say that we are No. 1 in the country in defense right now,” Holgorsen told reporters with a smile on Tuesday morning via Zoom.
