Transcript SEP20 09 ONE BIG WIN Cougars defeat AP No. 5 Oklahoma State By Phillipe Craig Entering the second week of the 2009 football season, the stage was set for the Cougars to accomplish something they had not done in nearly a quarter of a century — beat a top-5 opponent on the road. The last time they emerged from a top-5 opponent's stadium with a win was Nov. 10, 1984, when they knocked off then-No. 2Texas. Their opponent this time was Oklahoma State, another former member of the Southwest Conference, so the game would have added tie-ins. Most prognosticators believed it would be the only sure loss of the Cougars non-conference schedule and with good reason. The Cowboys had all the perceived momentum heading into the game: home-field advantage, a convincing victory the previous week over then-No. 13 Georgia and a roster of heavily recruited athletes destined for NFL glory. What those experts failed to consider was the Cougars' focus and the resolve of their leaders, head coach Kevin Sumlin and junior quarterback Case Keenum, and the abilities of their often-underappreciated defense. Much like the previous season's game against OSU, the Cougars built a halftime lead, taking a 24-7 advantage into the locker room. The Cowboys came back for the second-half with a vengeance, reeling off 21 consecutive points to take a 28-24 lead with 3:48 left in the third quarter. But unlike their previous matchup, a 56-37 win by the Cowboys, the Cougars were unfazed by the sudden turnaround and stayed focused enough to pull off the stunning upset. Stunning, that is, to everyone except for those in the UH locker room. After the teams exchanged touchdowns to put the score at 35-31 in the Cowboys' favor, Keenum found running back Bryce Beall for a 6-yard touchdown on the fourth down to give the Cougars a 38-35 lead with 6:42 remaining. Comerback Jamal Robinson picked off a pass from OSU quarterback Zac Robinson and took it 26 yards to seal the final score and 45-35 victory for UH. What ensued in the weeks after was a degree of excitement and optimism unseen on campus since before many members of the current roster were born. Fans were waiting for the team upon their return from Stillwater, Okla. and the campus was undulated in a sea of all things Cougar. Along with beating a top-5 opponent on the road for the first time in 25 years, the Cougars found themselves somewhere they hadn't been since 1991 with an Associated Press ranking at No. 21. With the win coming so early in the season the tone of the season changed for many fans, but not the players and coaches. "Being (ranked) is just another title," center Carl Barnett said. "We want to see where we are at the end of the year." ■ Fall • 39
