The Bulls and Houston will face off in an American Athletic battle at 8 p.m. ET at Fertitta Center. South Florida isn’t expected to win, but seeing as the odds didn’t stop them last game, maybe the squad has another upset up their sleeve.

Meanwhile, Houston narrowly escaped with a victory as the team sidled past the Tulsa Golden Hurricane 66-64. The overall outcome was to be expected, but the Golden Hurricane made it more of a contest than the oddsmakers had predicted. Guard Kyler Edwards took over for the Cougars, finishing with 29 points (a whopping 44% of their total).
The Bulls are now 6-10 while Houston sits at 15-2. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: South Florida is 353rd worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 58.9 on average.
