24. Houston

This ranking's contingent on Case Keenum being healthy in his sixth season for the Cougars, but it's worth noting that Houston recovered nicely after Keenum went out for the year in 2010. The Cougars finished 13th in scoring offense after their signal-caller went out in the third game of the year against UCLA and managed to cobble together a running attack that failed to gain more than 100 yards in just two of Houston's final nine games. Keenum gives the Cougars a chance to win shootouts the 2010 squad (which allowed 32.2 points per game) couldn't. And yes, I do think 2011 Houston with a healthy Keenum beats 2010 Auburn on a neutral field.

Pros: Keenum gives the Cougars arguably the nation's most polished passer, and one of the nation's most explosive offenses.

Cons: Young, unremarkable defense will be prone to repeated implosions.
That last sentence about Auburn makes the author lose a bit of credibility. Our defense is going to have to improve majorly for us to be ranked this season. we go up against too many good offenses.
