The University of Houston Cougars had three goals going into their home game with Georgia State.
They wanted to avoid complacency against the FBS school, avoid the slow offensive start that was nearly fatal for them last week against Louisiana Tech before Case Keenum engineered the biggest comeback in UH school historyand earned a hard fought 35-34 road win to move to 4-0 on the season.
They accomplished all three goals in their win at the Rob against the Georgia State Panthers. They scored on three of their first four possessions, were up 35-0 by halftime and rolled up 621 yards of their total 732 yards of offense by the third quarter and Case Keenum was 29-34 for 415 years and two TDs before he was pulled in the third quarter to allow the second teamers to get some live action work in.
They finally start 2011 C-USA play with the UTEP Miners in a televised Thursday night game in El Paso. The Coogs won’t forget that last trip to El Paso in 2009 in which they were ranked number 12 in the nation in the AP poll, major buzz was accumulating around the program with national sports talk putting UH on the short list of schools that had a legitimate shot of being BCS bowl-busters.
The only busting that happened was a 58-41 butt kicking adminsitered by UTEP that put a major crimp in their drive for a BCS bowl So yeah, while hey aren’t saying it publicly, revenge is probably on their minds.
Eat ’em up!
