UH Puts Up Roadblock For UAB's Offense
Defense dominates during in-and-out trip to Birmingham


By MICHAEL MURPHY
Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. For much of the season, the Houston Cougars' offense has been hogging the headlines. But in Saturday's Conference USA game against UAB, it was the UH defense that took center stage.

Make no mistake, the Cougars still did their thing on offense. But the defense completely stifled the Blazers throughout a 49-10 whipping of UAB at near-empty Legion Field.

It was a game of surgical efficiency for the Cougars (4-3, 3-1 C-USA), and they had to make it outpatient surgery.

With no hotel rooms available because of the Alabama-Tennessee clash right down the road in Tuscaloosa, the Cougars were forced to juggle their usual routine and fly in Saturday morning, mere hours before kickoff, and fly right back out afterward. (continued.... HERE)

The kicking game still needs work and a lot of it. If you were at the games so far this year the punters look like Ray Guy in practice and a bad nine iron during the games. As far as the field goal kicking is concerned....one name sums it up, East Carolina.

I didn't start this thread to gripe, it's just the missed FG jumped off the page at me. It's great to see the Houston D get in on the act and of course the offense didn't need no stinking hotel rooms.

On to El Paso. I believe a RE-PEAT is coming!!

I don't know how easy it was, considering they had to travel the same day of the game and not be rested in a hotel room the night before. Thats tough on the legs...

It's hard to say since it wasn't televised.. But the stats between the two of them were pretty comparable...

UTEP will be much more difficult than UAB but I would love another easy game.

Case played a little more than Joseph.
He directed 7 drives that resulted in TD for 35 points.
Blake was in there for 2 TDs.

It looks like Keenum is starting to assert himself as the front runner.
That is, as long as he doesn't make occasional crazy mistakes.

It is nice though, that Blake (9TDs, 2 Ints) is #9 in passing efficiency in the NCAA and Keenum (7 TDs, 8 Ints) is #30

Even though I'm not sure how much we can read from that.
We have receivers that can gain yards after catch, and it's too troublesome to find out which of the QB got "more" lucky in that department.
And we don't know how many drop balls, etc.
