The Houston Cougars have cracked the AP top 25 this week with a #24 ranking. This is the Coogs’ first ranking since 2011. The Temple Owls and Memphis Tigers are right on the Cougars’ heels with rankings of 26 and 27 respectively. The Coogs are also #26 in the coaches poll.
Congrats to the players, coaches, and staff who’ve all been working very hard to get to this point! I must temper expectations a bit and state that there’s no trophies for being ranked in October: The Coogs have a long road ahead to making this season a true success, but today’s ranking is a good start in the right direction. Congrats y’all!
