HOUSTON -- Players and coaches for sixth-ranked Houston might not use the exact phrase to describe Thursdays contest against UConn at TDECU Stadium. Luca Sbisa Golden Knights Jersey .Whether classified as a revenge game publicly or not, expect the Cougars to be looking for a little payback against the only team to beat them in 2015 while theyre the focus of college footballs national spotlight.The Cougars (4-0, 1-0 in the American Athletic Conference) were denied a perfect season last year when UConn posted a 20-17 home victory on Nov. 15 when Houston was No. 13 in the country. The Cougars went on to win the AAC Championship game over Temple and then waylaid Florida State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and have been perfect so far in 2016.Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. played sparingly in last years upset because of an ankle injury while star linebacker Elandon Roberts was ejected early due to a targeting call.Theres some added motivation for this one, Houston coach Tom Herman said Monday at his weekly media availability. We dont have much to talk about, but I do believe that our returning players on our team are better than they were last season. We dont see this game as a chance for redemption but there is a bit of internal sense of liability, of atonement, to right some of the wrongs that occurred.Houston has lost just one football game in Hermans 18-game tenure in the Bayou City, but he said the team wont focus on what happened last season.Its not something you forget about, Houston defensive end Cameron Malveaux said. We were 10-0 and on a roll. Being crushed like that stayed with us, but we are looking at it as another step towards our goal of getting to the conference championship.Houston comes into Thursdays game off a 64-3 walloping of Texas State on the road in which the Cougars played a nearly flawless game. Houston outgained Texas State 563-142 (429-82 in the first half), outrushed the Bobcats 243-33 and had 32 first downs to Texas States eight. The Cougars scored on their first seven possessions while fashioning a 43-3 halftime lead and had no turnovers or penalties.I was proud of the strides that the offensive made -- they played well, Herman said. It wasnt that they were playing awful. In the Cincinnati game (on Sept. 15), we were shooting ourselves in the foot in critical situations. The offense did a much better job (against Texas State) finding a rhythm and finishing drives. UConn (2-2, 0-1 American) heads to Houston on the heels of a 31-24 loss at home to Syracuse on Sept. 24 in which the Huskies owned significant advantages in time of possession (38:29-21:31), total plays (91-66) and rushing yards (144-62).Syracuse receiver Amba Etta-Tawo amassed 270 yards via 12 catches and two first-quarter touchdowns and UConn quarterback Bryant Shirreffs threw a pick-six late in the third quarter that all but doomed the Huskies.We had a couple of plays that created, really, a 21-point gift -- and you cant win like that, UConn coach Bob Diaco said.Saturdays game was tough because we can see how close these games are and how good weve become. Theres still been a few moments that have created losing and prevented winning. Its not a complacent attitude for sure. The team has gotten better every week in all three phases. For some reason, in all four games, we have had a few explosive plays in the passing games. Thats not a characteristic of how we play. Those plays have made the games harder than they need to be.Diaco understands that his team will have its hands full with Ward, who passed for 289 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 39 yards and another score in just over two quarters of play against Texas State.Ward has great pocket presence and utilizes movement back there to create opportunities -- hes not just scrambling to run, Diaco said. He puts their offense into good plays and has high intelligence about how to run their offense. Hes one of the premier quarterbacks in the nation.Houston opened as a 24? point favorite to win the grudge match with UConn. But Diaco knows his team will not back down and is buoyed by the win last year against Houston, no matter the circumstances.We are tough minded group and one that believes in itself, Diaco said. There is great clarity and strong leadership on this team. Jason Garrison Golden Knights Jersey . And follow right through Deadline Day for all the updates. From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie. Vadim Shipachyov Jersey . The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. Brisbanes miserable AFL season has continued with key defender Daniel McStay ruled out for the rest of the year due to a broken ankle.McStay, 21, landed awkwardly in a marking contest with GWS star Jeremy Cameron in Sundays 79-point loss at the Gabba, the 12th consecutive defeat for the embattled Lions.Its very disappointing for Dan, said Brisbane Lions football manager Matthew Francis.Hes been a mainstay for us in defence this year and has shown great leadership as one of the younger guys down back. Hell be a big loss.It leaves the Lions even shorter on tall options in defence, having lost Justin Clarke to a concussion-enforced retirement earlier in the seasoon and with veteran Daniel Merrett battling injury and illness. Oscar Dansk Jersey. Meanwhile, both Stefan Martin and Lewis Taylor will be sent for scans with the Lions hopeful they have escaped major damage after suffering injuries.Martin took a hit to his ribs when he collided with Giants goalsneak Steve Johnson in the first half but played out the match, while Taylor missed the game after sustaining an ankle injury at training on Thursday.Taylor is considered likely to miss Sundays wooden spoon decider against Essendon at Etihad Stadium. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball JerseysCheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
