    GAME NOTES
    ** Oklahoma improves to 2-0 in the all-time series and enjoyed its biggest win over UH in the series... In the first meeting, Oklahoma claimed a 40-14 win over the Cougars during the 1981 Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas.

    ** Saturday's attendance of 84,280 was the eighth-largest crowd to watch a Cougar football game in UH history... It was the largest crowd since 109,580 fans saw the Cougars loss 50-3 at Michigan on Sept. 6, 2003... That crowd at Michigan ranked as the largest in UH history.

    ** The 49 points allowed by the Cougars in the first half is believed to be a UH single-game record for points allowed in a half... ... For certain, it is the most points allowed in the opening half since 1972... The last time that the Cougars allowed 40+ points in the first half came when UCLA scored 45 points on the way to a 66-10 win on Oct. 4, 1997 in Los Angeles, Calif.

    ** Oklahoma's 63 points ranked as the third-highest total ever scored against the Cougars... It was the most points by a Cougar opponent since Conference USA rival Louisville took a 66-45 win over UH on Nov. 22, 2003.

    ** Oklahoma's 50-point win tied as the fifth-worst loss in UH history... The Cougars previously lost by 50 points in a 50-0 decision at Texas on Nov. 6, 1982... Saturday's loss was the biggest by a Cougar team since UH loss 66-10 at UCLA on Oct. 4, 1997, in the worst loss in school history.

    ** Oklahoma's Antonio Perkins became the first player since Louisville's Anthony Floyd to return a punt for a touchdown against the Cougars... Floyd last accomplished that feat on Nov. 10, 2001.

    ** With 61 rushing yards, the Cougars posted back-to-back games with less than 100 yards rushing... It was the first time since the 2002 season (vs. Tulane, 80 yards, 29 att. Sept. 7; vs. UL Lafayette, 78 yards, 25 att., Sept. 14) that the Cougars were held to fewer than 100 rushing yards in consecutive games.

     

     

    ** Quarterback Kevin Kolb saw his five-game streak of throwing at least one touchdown pass come to an end... Kolb's last game without a touchdown pass came against Conference USA rival Southern Miss on Nov. 8, 2003.

    ** With 15 pass completions, quarterback Kevin Kolb moved past Gary Mullins (1969-71) into eighth place in UH history with 250 career completions... Next in the UH records book is David Dacus (1987-88) who completed 291 career passes.

    ** With 221 passing yards, quarterback Kevin Kolb moved past David Dacus (1987-88) into eighth place in UH history with 3,556 career passing yards... Next in the UH records book is Gary Mullins (1969-71) who threw for 4,095 passing yards during his career.

    ** With 179 yards of total offense, quarterback Kevin Kolb moved past D.C. Nobles (1971-73) into ninth place in UH history with 3,852 yards of total offense... Next in the UH records book is Lionel Wilson (1980-83), who accumulated 4,388 yards of total offense during his career.

    ** Wide receiver Kendal Briles' 63-yard reception around the 13:36 mark of the first quarter was a career long... It topped his previous best of 32 yards against Rice on Sept. 5, 2004.

    ** Punter Justin Laird's 57-yard punt around the 7-minute mark of the second quarter was a career best... It topped his previous long of 45 yards against Rice on Sept. 5, 2004.

    ** With his 1-yard touchdown plunge at the 3:10 mark of the fourth quarter, running back Ryan Gilbert recorded his first career touchdown.

    ** With his fumble recovery around the 1-minute mark of the fourth quarter, safety Courtney Brooks recorded his first career fumble recovery.

    ** Kicker Dustin Bell's missed PAT at the 3:10 mark of the fourth quarter snapped a streak of 68 consecutive PATs made... It was the third longest streak among active Division I-A kickers (Ole Miss' Jonathan Nicols, 98 straight; Oregon's Jared Siegel, 91 straight; both entering Saturday's games).

    ** With his PAT in the first quarter, kicker Dustin Bell moved into a tie for 10th place with Gene Shannon (1949-51) with 168 career points... Next in the UH records book is Sebastian Villarreal (1995-97) who scored 169 points during his career.

    ** CONSECUTIVE STARTS STREAKS: Defensive tackle Kade Lane made his 26th consecutive start, dating back to Aug. 31, 2002, against Rice at Rice Stadium.
