Transcript Or the Next... 40 second-half points by Houston won it, including three TDs on interception returns by Johnny Jackson. The 60 points were a UH all-time high against a Texas team, and suddenly UH was rolling. It was the first of four games in November in which the Cougars would remain undefeated. Against Temple the next week, UH had arguably its easiest win in years. Dacus threw for 376 yards and three TDs, as the Cougars romped over Temple, 37-7. The flashy stats were on the offensive end, where Dacus completed a school-record 32 passes. But the most impressive ones were from the defense. The Owls were limited to only 73 rushing yards and committed four interceptions. One interception, by safety Randy Thornton, was run back for a touchdown, making six Cougar TDs off interceptions over the season. It was Thornton's last triumph as a Cougar, though. He was declared ineligible the next week by athletic officials after he fell below the 12-hour level needed to stay eligible. The Daily Cougar followed up on the story by disclosing that Thornton's records were falsified in an attempt to maintain his eligibility. The Cougar reported that Thornton had been below 12 hours since Nov. 11 and that he was ineligible for the UH win over Temple. At least one university official tried to add Thornton into physical education classes on Nov. 12, even though the senior had never attended any of the classes. The adds were removed after they were brought to the attention of Shirley Ezell, associate vice president of aca demic programs. The university voluntarily forfeited the Temple win after the athletic department found "judgmental and clerical" errors in the adds. Athletic Director Rudy Davalos, who announced the forfeit, said, "After I studied it and talked to more people, it became apparent that ... he shouldn't have played in the game." Meanwhile, the Cougars' phenomenal November was continuing. Houston scored 10 fourth- quarter points to tie Texas Tech, 10-10, and knock the Raiders out of the Independence Bowl. And Pardee's first season concluded, appropriately, with a fireworks offensive show against Rice. The Cougars and Owls combined for 1,032 yards of offense as UH knocked off Rice, 45-21. And as the clock ran down on 1987, Pardee had to decide if he would give Chip Browndyke a shot at a school-record 19th field goal of the year or allow Jason Phillips to become only the fourth receiver in NCAA history to catch 100 passes. Pardee went for the field goal and Browndyke made it worthwhile for the game's final points. Phillips wasn't the only Cougar to fall short of a goal; James Dixon, despite the phenomenal start, ended up 41 yards short of the national record for kickoff return yardage. But they both return next year, as do all three quarterbacks and all-conference cornerback Johnny Jackson, and Houston should be picked among the top half of SWC team in 1988. — Scott Butterworth 124 University of Houston So does Andre Ware, he of the broken left wing.
