The Houston Cougars (10-0) moved up in both of the Top 25 national polls which were announced Monday. Houston received 168 points to land at No. 20 (up from No. 21 last week) in the latest USA TODAY Coaches' Poll and earned 266 points to rank No. 21 (up from 24 in last week's poll) in the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

This marks the second straight season that Houston is ranked nationally. A year ago, the Cougars finished the 2017-18 season at No. 21 in the final Associated Press and at No. 22 in the final USA TODAY Coaches' poll.

Houston has not been ranked in back-to-back seasons since 1983-84 -- the Phi Slama Jama Era.

Houston's next game is Thursday, December 20, against Utah State, at 7 p.m., inside the Fertitta Center.
