2011 UH Cougar Watch-Coogs Number 8 In BCS Rankings

After a remarkable Senior Week which saw the ESPN GameDay show appear on campus for the first time ever and a sold out Robertson Stadium witness Case Keenum break (ho hum) another NCAA passing record, the unbeaten University of Houston Cougars parlayed their 37-7 victory over the SMU Mustangs to the highest ever ranking in the BCS poll and their first Top Ten AP and Coaches Poll rankings since 1990.

And hopefully it at least raised Case Keenum's profile in the Heisman race.

The Cougars jumped up three spots in the pols thanks to all of the losses last weekend by other schools.  They are now number 8 in the BCS and AP polls, and number 7 in the USA Today Coaches one.

Damn, what we wouldn't give for a NCAA football playoff right now.

Saturday's win for the 11-0 Cougars also sets up a regular season closing 11 AM CST showdown in Tulsa on Friday for the C-USA West Division title and a hosting berth in the December 3 C-USA championship game.
