One of just 10 remaining unbeaten teams this season, the 21st- ranked Houston Cougars turn their attention to the visiting Marshall Thundering Herd for a Conference USA clash at Robertson Stadium.

For Houston, this is Homecoming weekend and the second leg of a three-game homestand, which the team opened with a 56-3 rout over East Carolina on October 8. The Cougars were idle last Saturday, giving them some time to heal up and enter this contest with two weeks of preparation. Despite not playing over the weekend, UH moved from No. 25 to No. 21 in the latest AP Poll, and the team debuted at No. 19 in the initial BCS standings, released on Sunday evening.

This game pits the C-USA West Division-leading Cougars against a Marshall squad that currently sits atop the conference's East Division. The Thundering Herd rebounded from a rain-soaked loss at UCF two weeks ago by knocking off Rice last Saturday, 24-20. The Herd are off to a 2-1 start in league play, while their non-conference losses have come at the hands of West Virginia, Ohio University and Virginia Tech. They notched a 17-13 win at Louisville on October 1 and earlier in the year handed Southern Miss its lone loss of the season in both teams' Conference USA opener.
