Last season, No. 13 Houston traveled north to take on UConn, where the Huskies upset the Cougars 20-17 to secure their first bowl bid since the 2011 Fiesta Bowl. The loss was Houston’s first under head coach Tom Herman, and remains the only loss the Cougars have suffered in their last 18 games.

This Thursday, the Huskies will head down to No. 6 Houston looking to play spolier once again. Sports Editor Dan Madigan was able to ask Jonathan Valadez, assistant sports editor at Houston’s student newspaper, The Daily Cougar, a few questions in order to learn a little bit more about this talented Houston team and their matchup against UConn.
