Houston, Purdue lead the way on defense

The Cougars and Boilermakers each put up nearly flawless performances this week, allowing a total of six points. Clemson wasn't too far off, shutting down Lamar Jackson and Louisville, while Texas defended admirably in an overtime loss to USC.

Cal and Purdue have been the two biggest Power 5 surprises, thanks to first-year coaches Justin Wilcox and Jeff Brohm. Each has transformed the unit where he specializes: Cal's defense for Wilcox, Purdue's offense for Brohm. Both teams have Power 5 road victories and could shake things up in their respective leagues next week with home games against USC (Cal) and Michigan (Purdue).
