September provides CFP answers but leaves questions, too

The season's first month taught us that Bama is still the best, Louisville is legit and Houston has hope, but heading into October, there are lingering College Football Playoff questions.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Houston wide receiver D'Eriq King had a passing touchdown, a receiving touchdown and a kickoff return for a touchdown in Saturday's win over Texas State. The last FBS player to do that in one game was Toledo's Eric Page in 2010 against Central Michigan.

Houston QB Greg Ward Jr. doesn't like talking about himself but did enjoy talking about freshman D'Eriq King, the former QB who became the first in UH history to score a passing TD, receiving TD and return TD in one game. "He holds himself to a high standard," Ward said. "That guy right there, he came to play today."

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Houston jumps right back into practice Sunday to prep for a Thursday night game against UConn, the only team that beat UH in 2015. Tom Herman knows his players will be fired up for that rematch. "There's some added motivation for this one," Herman said. "However sore they are, however tired they are, I've got a feeling they'll find a way to block all that out."

No. 6 Houston is up 43-3 at the half against Texas State. Greg Ward has been literally unstoppable tonight -- Texas State has not stopped a single UH offensive drive -- and the Cougars' defense is giving up nothing on the ground as usual, allowing 17 rushing yards on 11 attempts. Everything going right for UH tonight.

Houston's No. 2 RB Mulbah Car went down clutching his right knee late in the 2nd quarter against Texas State. No word yet on the severity of the injury. The freshman back has been a solid contributor and had a 100-yard day against Lamar earlier this season.
