2011 UH Cougar Watch-Coogs Beat SMU

It was Senior Day at The Rob as a special and historic BCS busting football season continues at my alma mater.

The senior class who helped lead the 11th ranked Cougars back to national relevance and the cusp of elite football status played their last regular season home game against C-USA West Division foe SMU.   It was also a week that included a first time visit to the city and our campus by the ESPN GameDay crew and heightened sports media attention about what happening with UH Cougars athletics.  

And oh yeah, don't look now Texas, but you have an emerging problem on the hardwood too. The UH men's ballers beat Arkansas 87-78 in North Little Rock, AR to go to 3-0 to open the season for the first time since 2006. 

So Rick Barnes, when are your chicken Horns gonna play us?

But back to focusing on Senior Day.   In front of a record crowd at the Rob, the UH Cougar football team fought an upset minded SMU squad to take a 37-7 win over the Mustangs.  . 

UH Coach Kevin Sumlin talks about the seniors in the post-game press conference.

They moved to 11-0 on the season (7-0 in C-USA West) and set up the showdown in Tulsa on Friday with the Golden Hurricane for the C-USA West Division title, a spot in the C-USA championship game on December 3 and a potential BCS bowl game for the first time since 1985.
