Watch: Lamar at No. 6 Houston

After last week's upset of Oklahoma, Houston's No. 6-ranking is its highest since 1990. The Cougars, however, will be without QB Greg Ward Jr. (shoulder) as Kyle Postman gets his second career start. Ward's MRI showed "no structural damage," coach Tom Herman said on Monday. Streaming live on ESPN3

Houston will be without starting QB Greg Ward Jr. today vs. Lamar because of a shoulder injury, the team announced moments ago. Ward suffered the injury to his throwing shoulder in Houston's 33-23 win over Oklahoma last week, but Tom Herman said he doesn't believe the injury to be serious. Backup QB Kyle Postma will start today in his place.

The Bills have hired John Blake to replace Karl Dunbar, fired Sunday, as their defensive line coach. Blake, who was hired last month at Lamar University, resigned from North Carolina amid an NCAA investigation into his financial relationship with then-NFL agent Gary Wichard. "He endured a difficult time in his coaching career a few years back, but has moved forward with his life and put that behind him," Rex Ryan said of Blake in a statement. "Since that time he has worked with a number of NFL players and earned their respect with his ability to hone their skills and techniques." Ryan coached under Blake at Oklahoma in 1998.
