SMU's Zach Line Will Be Game Time Decision Against Houston With Injured Toe

The Houston Cougars take on the SMU Mustangs in a conference USA battle this week in Texas.

The No. 11 ranked Houston Cougars (10-0) take on the SMU Mustangs (6-4) this weekend as ESPN's College Gameday makes their way down to Houston, Texas for this possible BCS-implicating game for the Cougars. The Cougars were the biggest beneficiaries to Boise State's tough loss to TCU on Saturday as BCS games start to take fold. It's been five games in a row that the Cougars have won by at least 30 points and SMU will bring the best team to town that Houston has seen for a while.

But SMU is having to deal with another injury to their star running back Zach Line, who is now facing a toe injury that head coach June Jones said has put Line in a boot this week. Line has already had to deal with hamstring and shoulder injuries this year so playing through pain is nothing new for the Mustangs running back. But the Mustangs will need Conference USA's leading rusher to play this weekend if they're going to try and hang with the Cougars. Line will be a game time decision according to Jones.

The game time is set for 2:30pm CT at Robertson Stadium in Houston, Texas.
