HOUSTON (AP) Greg Ward Jr. ran for two touchdowns and passed for another in the second half as Houston rallied from a 21-point third-quarter deficit to beat Central Florida 31-24 on Saturday.

The Cougars (7-2, 4-2 American) could find themselves back in the Top 25 after their comeback against the Knights (4-4, 2-2).

Matthew Wright's 41-yard field goal gave UCF a 24-3 lead early in the second half before the Cougars' defense stiffened, holding the Knights to minus-5 yards of offense in the third quarter and 29 for the half.

Ward rallied the Cougars with TD runs for 1 and 14 yards and a 6-yard scoring pass to Romello Brooker. Duke Catalon added a 12-yard rushing TD. Two of the scores followed turnovers by UCF, which had four in the second half.

Ward was 26 of 37 for 240 yards but threw three interceptions, all in the first half when UCF took a 21-3 lead on three rushing touchdowns.
