The Houston Cougars remain in the hunt for bowl eligibility and are still very much in control of their own destiny with an opportunity to take a big step in that direction this week with their homecoming game against C-USA West Division leading Tulsa.
Sophomore linebacker Derrick Mathews has continued to perform at an extremely high level and continues to be one of the leaders of the defense.
He talked with the media on Tuesday about what to expect with Tulsa as well as the excitement around homecoming this week.
CougarsDen was on hand and brings this video of Mathews's media availability.
