Transcript COUGAR FOOTBALL: HAWAII BOWL It was what every Cougar fan had hoped for: a bowl berth. After cleaning up their last Conference USA opponent, the University of Alabama-Birmingham, 56-28, their hopes of picking up a bowl were all but secured. As the chips fell, UH quickly agreed to spend Christmas Day in Hawaii in the day's only televised bowl game. The Cougars fought bravely, matching the Warriors' high-flying offense with equal depth. Both teams ran up the points column. Through some luck, the game extended into overtime, giving the victory-hungry Cougars a final chance to redeem themselves. In the final seconds, however, the game ended sourly with both teams in a bitter fight on national TV. The scoreboard read 54-48, and finally the dream came to an end. PRESS CLIP Cougars stranded in island paradise BY KEENAN SINGLETON the DAILY COUGAR HONOLULU — The stars for Houston arc usually aligned. Hadnot, Brandon Middleton, Joe Clay and Kevin Kolb are the names most mentioned when highlighting the Cougars. But some new stars twinkled for Houston on Christmas Day. Names like Vincent Marshall, Chad McCullar, Eddie McCray and Jackie Battle shined brightly for the Cougars. A mix of new 192 Sports and old stars wouldn't be enough though, as UH fell 54-48 in triple- overtime to Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl in Honolulu. Although regulation ran more than three-and-a-half hours and featured an "ohmygod" 81-yard touchdown sprint from Marshall with 22 seconds left to tie the game at 34, the game did not truly begin until the clock read "00:00." The teams scored on their first two possessions in overtime, driv ing the score to 48-48. Houston's Will Gulley intercepted Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang's two- point conversion pass at the goal line, giving Hawaii a 54-48 lead and the Cougars a chance to win had they been able to score a touchdown and convert a two- point try. (Division 1-Amies mandate that teams attempt a two- point conversion after the second overtime). On fourth-and-five at the 20- yard line Kolb was prematurely forced from the pocket and completed a two-yard pass to Marshall, ending Houston's season (7-6) and chances at winning their first bowl game since the 1980 Garden State Bowl (35-0 win over Navy). "(We) probably should have gone for two at the end (of regulation), we had tremendous momentum," head coach Art Briles said. "We were the underdogs and I made a coaching mistak. should have tried to end it there gotten on the plane and gone <r happy. "They did a great job today.; our guys did," Briles said. 1 ery game is another opportune for someone to step up." W| where you turned the young* were stepping up. Battle was Houston's Vs0 Bowl MVP. The 6-2,250 pj freshman rumbled fori 25 f onl9carries,scoringthreetoiic downs. McCullar carried* Cougars in the first half ^ ing four passes for 86 yards ^ a touchdown (the sophomore Sorted with five catches for 103 -" ds and a touchdown). McCray *as in Hawaii's backfield all ?ame, totaling two sacks and four tokles for losses. Marshall (seven catches, 157 yards, one TD), who led the Cou- gars in receptions this season, hased mostly on short screen P^s, may have eclipsed his teammates with his game-tying catch ^heendofthegame."(Theun- ^relassmen) wanted to send the semors out witharing," McCray, a Ashman defensive lineman, said. McCullar and the Cougars took early advantage of Hawaii's defense, who was without the services of the Western Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year, Travis LaBoy (academically ineligible), pounding the ball with backs sophomore Anthony Evans and freshman Battle on Houston's first drive of the game. A 14-yard run from Kolb and 15-yard penalty (late hit out of bounds) set up the first score of the game. Kolb would find McCullar over the middle of the field for a 34-yard touchdown to put the Cougars up early 7-0 with eleven minutes, 43 seconds remaining in the first quarter. McCullar nearly made it back- to-back touchdowns when he returned a punt 60 yards to the Hawaii 10-yard line. Kicker Dustin Bell's 21-yard field goal put the Cougars up 10-0 with 9:05 remaining in the first quarter. Starting quarterback Jason Whieldon's injury with 14:28 left in the second opened the door for the Warriors' usual starting signal caller Chang (26-42, 475 yards, five touchdowns), who closed Houston's lead on his first play from scrimmage on a 48- yard strike to Clifton Herbert. Marshal fs over-the-shoulder 45-yard catch on a Kolb (19-34, 332 yards, two touchdowns) scramble placed Houston on the Hawaii 40-yard line. That catch set up a two-yard touchdown dive from Battle that put the Cougars up 17-10 with 11:16 left in the first half. The two teams jogged into their locker rooms with Houston up 20-13. As a sign of holiday giving, the teams exchanged turnovers like gifts, committing four turnovers (two apiece) on five possessions in the third quarter. Cougar safety Jermain Wocxlard forced Hawaii receiver Sc'c Poumele fumble. al lowing defensive back Roshawn Pope to recover the Fumble with 8:02 left in the third quarter. KolIVs interception three plays later gave the Warriors the ball and ultimately their first lead of the game, 27-20, with 4:35 seconds left in the third quarter. Hawaii scored the only points in the third quarter, shutting out the Cougars 14-0. Those expecting an offensive shootout were not disappointed - - the teams combined for 1,158 yards of offense.
