Transcript Wins 10 Losses 4 upsets 1- Plays 1,150 Offensive yards gained by uh 7,887 Offensive yards gained by opponents 6,318 Interceptions 11 Sacks 24 Junior quarterback Case Keenum finishes the season with a school-record 5,671 yards and 44 touchdowns. The Cougars notch 77 touchdowns and 591 points for the season. UH holds its opponents to 56 touchdowns and 421 points. continued from Page 6 taking a 24-7 advantage in to the locker room at halftime, and this time made the most of it, shocking the Cowboys and the rest of the nation by escaping with a 45-35 win and their first national ranking in 18 years. The win was also the Cougars' first over a top-5 opponent since 1984, something not lost on Sumlin or his players. "For us, as a program, this is a big win," Sumlin said. "It legitimizes our University. It legitimizes our program. That's more important to me than what's happened in the last hundred years." The Cougars had to wait two weeks to defend their newfound No. 17 ranking, but the wait would be well worth it, as Keenum led a comeback for the ages against another Big 12 powerhouse, Texas Tech. Playing in front of a Robertson Stadium-record crowd of 32,114 and trailing the Red Raiders by five, Keenum drove the Cougars on an 16-play, 95-yard drive in the final minutes and capped the comeback by running for the game- winning touchdown from 4-yards out with 49 seconds remaining. As fast as the Cougars' meteoric rise through the rankings was, their descent would be just a quick, as UH stumbled the following week at UTEP in its first C-USA game of the season. After UH jumped out to a 17-10 lead in the first half, UTEP responded with 14 unanswered points en route to outscoring the Cougars 48-24 the rest of the way to cap a 58-41 upset. The Cougars returned to Houston suddenly out of theTop-25 and looking to regroup from an early C-USA hole. Sumlin did just that, refocusing his players and the Cougars responded, winning their next five contests, including a 31-24 win at Mississippi State the following week. The last two games of the streak involved more of the Cougars' late-game magic, with Keenum first hooking up with receiver Patrick Edwards for a 28-yard touchdown with 21 seconds remaining to top Southern Miss 50-43 and the following week leading a pair of scoring drives in the final 3:23 to top Tulsa on the road. The latter involved an onside kick with UH trailing the Golden Hurricane and only 20 seconds left in regulation. Keenum again saved his best for last, driving the Cougars to the Tulsa 34 with 3 seconds, setting up freshman kicker Matt Hogan's 51-yard field goal as time expired and a 46-45 win for UH. The Cougars stumbled again the following week, falling 37-32 at Central Florida, but just as he did after their first hiccup, Sumlin rallied the Cougars to finish the regular season with blowout victories over Memphis and in-town rival Rice, claiming the C-USA West crown and setting up a matchup with East Carolina for the C-USA title and an invite to the Liberty Bowl. Alas, it was not to be for UH, as their late-game theatrics went for naught and the Pirates used an interception in the end zone with 42 seconds remaining to preserve a 38-32 win and back-to-back C-USA titles. The Cougars' consolation prize was a rematch in the Armed Forces Bowl with 2008 opponent Air Force. In a matchup of the nations' No. 1 passing offense and No. 1 passing defense, the Falcons prevailed behind a record six interceptions thrown by Keenum, and with the 47-20 defeat, the Cougars ended the season with their first set of consecutive losses all year. Sumlin said after the game that he was still proud of his departing senior class and that he was looking forward to fulfilling the promise shown by underclassmen in 2010. ■ It legitimizes our university. It legitimizes our program. Anytime that you can go on the road and win and beat atop 10 team, it really helps your confidence as a program and it helps your pride as a university.a — UH head coach Kevin Sumlin 8 • Features Features • 9
