Transcript Pre-Season The 1982 version of the University of Houston Cougars opened their season on the road against the Miami Hurricanes from the University of Miami — Florida. The Coogs dropped a disappointing 12-31 loss in the one hundred plus degree heat. Injuries and turnovers played big roles in the game. Houston lost the services of fifth year fullback Ernie Wesley for the season. Audrey McMillian, starting for the injured Lionel Wilson was one of the few bright spots, completing 11 passes for 100 yards. Dwayne Love, playing for Wesley, rushed for both of the Cougar touchdowns. Weedy Harris led the defense with ten tackles. Before the game there had been some question about how well the inexperienced players would perform. The offense was inconsistent, turning the ball over three times, but mounted an impressive drive late in the game. The defense, although they couldn't quite get it together played well at times and got better as the game went on. The Coogs limped home and promptly dropped the Dome opener to the Arizona State Sundevils. Houston could only manage 24 yards against ASU, their worst output since 1977. In all fairness to the UH defense ASU only had to drive 41 yards for 17 of their points, all in the first half. The Cougars were thus in a bad mood when the Southland Conference Lamar Cardinals arrived in town. Not even a Division IA club, the Cardinals were predictably flattened by UH 48-3. Dwayne Love rushed for 192 yards and Lionel Wilson threw for 222 as the offense piled up 634 yards, one of the ten best totals in UH history. The Coogs finished the "preseason" with a 1-2 record, not really ready to begin conference play. Pictured Left to Right: Lionel Wilson makes his season debut against ASU.
