Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. will be a senior in 2016 and looks to help the Coogs improve on their 2015 successes. After Houston went 11-1 in the regular season, the Coogs racked up wins over Temple in the conference title game and a win over #12 Florida State in the Peach Bowl. The Coogs look to have an even better year in 2016 and Ward Jr should be on many early Heisman watch lists. Athlon lists him as the 5th best qb in college football. Not bad!
