Big time college football returned to Houston, as the Cougars finished second in the Southwest Conference, and finished in the top twenty for the first time since 1979. Although the season ended on a sour note with a 24-22 loss to Washington State in the Aloha Bowl on Christmas Day, second year Head Coach Jack Pardee led his team to its first bowl appearance since 1985, with many SWC and NCAA records falling to the Run-and-Shoot Cougars. Seniors James Dixon and Jason Phillips became the first pair of receivers in NCAA history to each catch 100 passes in a single season on the same team, and the first pair to gain 1,000 yards receiving apiece. Phillips also set the conference mark with 1,444 receiving yards. Quarterback Andre Ware set a SWC record with 25 touchdown passes on the season, and set a single game record with 471 passing yards. Running back Chuck Weather- spoon pitched in another 1,000 yards on the ground to balance one of the most potent offenses in college football. But with a national audience watching, the UH defense stole the show against the Wyoming Cowboys. Ranked tenth in the nation entering the game, the Cowboys suffered through 16 quarterback sacks at the hands of the Cougars, with defensive tackle Glenn Montgomery getting six of those sacks. The Cougars breezed to a 34-10 victory, in what Athletic Director Rudy Davalos called the ' 'highlight of the season/' Yet it was a season filled with highlights. Following routs of Louisiana Tech and Missouri, the Cougars defeated the Baylor Bears in Waco 27-24 for its third road win to start the season.
