The Cougars (4-0) are looking to extend their impressive start to the new season to five straight wins, when they take on the Huskies (2-2) in the lone AP Top 25 game on the fixture for the night.

But despite their encouraging start to the campaign, which includes knocking off the then-No. 3 Oklahoma 33-23 in its season opener, Houston heads into the battle very cautious having seen its 10-game winning streak snapped by Connecticut on November 21 last season.

It was the only-ever meeting between the two programs.

The Huskies slipped up against Syracuse on Saturday and were beaten 31-24, and they are eager to get back on the field, as they seek to repeat the same kind of shock they accomplished last term.

Quarterback Greg Ward Jr., who missed last year’s defeat at UConn because of an ankle injury, has been one of the highlighted players for Houston – accounting for eight touchdowns.

So far this season, Ward Jr. has thrown for five TDs and ran for three more in his three games and the pundits expect him to carry on with that form against a UConn side that is giving up 22.5 points per game and 1,524 totals yards, defensively.

The senior has won 17 straight as the Houston’s starter.

Meanwhile, at the other end, in the last outing, Noel Thomas caught 14 passes for 111 yards and running back Arkeel Newsome ran for 81 yards and a touchdown for UConn in the defeat to Syracuse.

In the meantime, among the noted injured players out of the contest are Houston cornerback Brandon Wilson, who misses the game with a lower leg and running back Mulbah Car, who cannot go because of a knee problem.

Notably, at 1.45, Houston is the only college football team in the country holding opponents to fewer than 1.5 yards per rush.

In the other college football game on in Week 5 on Thursday night, Kansas will take on Texas Tech at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, TX, live on Fox Sports 1 USA at 8:30pm ET.
