Coming into 2016, second-year head coach Tom Herman is aiming for an even better season with the Cougars. Greg Ward Jr. will be returning in 2016 as starting quarterback after his breakout season when he threw for more than 2,000 yards and rushed for 1,000 yards. After losing wide receiver Demarcus Ayers to the NFL Draft, Chance Allen will need to step up to fill the hole left by the wide receiver. The Houston defense has 5 starters returning, but the question will be filling three important positions in the secondary.
