Transcript H fans had much to cheer about going into the Liberty JBowl: a conference championship and the first bowl in eight 'ears. Everything went great for the Cougars except the game's jfinal score. The No. 23 Syracuse Orangemen'hogged the ball and used a deadly ground attack to get past the Cougars 30-17. Senior tailback Antowain Smith had a stellar game, leading the Cougars with 119 rushing yards, 44 receiving and two touchdowns. Syracuse scored a touchdown quickly on the opening drive, in the form of a 58-yard run by Liberty Bowl MVP Orangemen tailback Malcolm Thomas. Houston responded with a 21-yard ■ touchdown pass to Smith. The Orangemen scored the next nine points, including a safety as the snap on an attempted punt went over Cougar punter Ignacio Saucedas head and through the end zone. Smith !The Climax Adam Burns tirew the game within two at the half with a three-yard touchdown run, making the score 16-14. The Orangemen pass defense was stifling, as senior Cougar quarterback Chuck Clements had trouble connecting his passes. He only completed 14 of 28 passes and a touchdown^ Syracuse scored the final touchdown of the game to put a Cougar victory out of reach. Defensively^ the Cougars could not stop the run. Thomas led Syracuse with 201 yards and a touchdown. One of Houston's top defenders, junior linebacker Mike Parker, only had eight tackles, and the defense gave up 396 total rushing yards. Syracuse also controlled the clock, possessing the ball for (38:01 of the game. Despite this, the Cougars kept the game close until the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Smith and cornerback Delmonico Montgomery won out- standing.offensive^and defensive player honors for Houston. It may not have been the perfect ending for them and other pernor players, but playing in a bowl would place their names on ■he list of Houston gridiron greats and heal a Cougar football pro- 'gram that had long been ailing. Senior running back Antowain smith cuts around the line and into the open field. Smith's 1 1 9 rushing yards were one of the few Cougar offensive highlights. Photo By: Edmond Vahedi It would have been easy for the Cougars to play dead against the 23rd ranked Syracuse Orangemen in the Liberty Bowl - the team had already bettered their '95 season record by five wins and captured a conference title. But riding on a three kgame winning streak, the Cougars gave a soln performance in a game few people thottQht they would even play in. 1 Liberty Bowl 0
