Houston also struggled in its first year in the Big 12, only posting wins over Baylor and, surprisingly, West Virginia in conference play. However, the lowlight was a 41-0 shutout by Kansas State in Week 10 in Manhattan. It was a season bad enough to get Dana Holgorsen fired, but poaching Willie Fritz from Tulane could pay dividends. Fritz already brought in former Louisiana quarterback Zeon Chriss to be a better version of what Donovan Smith tried to be last year. For the most part, this is a "wait and see what happens" game.
