My favorite college football team has had an interesting season so far. They started 3-0 and knocked off Big 12 schools Oklahoma State and Texas Tech on national TV to get to and eventually climb to a No 12 ranking in the college football polls for the first time in a decade.
Then came the disastrous trip to El Paso for their C-USA opener. The Coogs played matador defense as the UTEP Miners ran over, around and through them while springing a 58-41 upset that made the Sun Bowl homecoming crowd very happy, knocked us completely out of the college football rankings and may have cost us a shot at a possible BCS bowl bid.
Saturday we got to play on the road against a tough SEC team for their homecoming. This time the Coogs played rude guests as Case Keenum passed for 434 yard and four touchdowns in their 31-24 win against a Mississippi State Bulldogs team in Starkville that came an inches short goal line play of knocking off LSU.
Not bad. 2-0 against the Big 12 and 1-0 against the SEC. If they won't let you join 'em, just beat them.
That victory put the Coogs back in the AP and USA Today Coaches poll rankings at Number 23 on both polls.
Now just handle your C-USA business so we can stay there for the rest of the season this time.
And will somebody at UH please sign Kevin Sumlin to a long term contract?
