Greg McElroy Lists Houston as His No. 1 Team in Texas

NCAA Football: Cincinnati at Houston

With everyone focused on the Texas Longhorns, the Baylor Bears, and the Texas A&M Aggies, Greg McElroy doesn’t want Houston to go under the radar.

On his show Always College Football, McElroy stated that he feels Houston is the only team with a legitimate chance to win 10 or 11 games. After Houston, he had Texas A&M ranked at the next best team out of Texas, realistically as a 9-3 or 8-4 team. While on his show taking mailbag questions, McElroy was asked to rank the Texas college teams ahead of the 2022 season, with his rankings as follows:

 
  1. Houston
  2. Texas A&M
  3. Texas
  4. Baylor
  5. TCU
  6. SMU
  7. UTSA
  8. North Texas
  9. UTEP
  10. Texas Tech
  11. Rice
  12. Texas State

As he ranked the 12 FBS teams out of Texas for 2022, McElroy said “I think 10 teams from the state of Texas will go bowling. There’s a lot of good teams from the state of Texas, right now. To think that 10 of 12 could ultimately get to the postseason says all you need to know about the Lone Star State and how quality of football is right now.”

Houston finished last season with an 12-2 record, losing to Cincinnati 20-35 in the American Athletic Conference Championship before going on to beat Auburn 17-13 in the Birmingham Bowl. For the Cougars, this will be their last season in the AAC as they are set to enter the Big 12 on July 1st, 2023.

Can Houston make their way back to the AAC Championship game and find themselves in a New Year’s Six Bowl?
