University of Houston Preview
Posted 20 August 2012 - 01:19 PM
Coach Kevin Sumlin's squad began the 2011 season with a few challenges. The Cougars managed to get past UCLA (38-34), North Texas (48-23), and Louisiana Tech (35-34) in their first three games. Houston closed out its non-conference season with a dominating victory over Georgia State (56-0) which helped it build momentum for its Conference USA opener with Texas-El Paso (49-42). The Cougars showed no mercy the rest of the way as they blew out East Carolina (56-3), Marshall (63-28), Rice (73-34), UAB (56-13), Tulane (73-17), SMU (37-7), and Tulsa (48-16).
The Cougars were projected to make their first trip to a BCS bowl game prior to the C-USA Championship with Southern Miss. However, an opponent finally figured out how to slow down Houston's offense and the Golden Eagles claimed the league crown with a 49-28 win. The C-USA Championship was the last at Houston for Sumlin, who accepted the head coaching position at Texas A&M.
