Second-Half Rally Nets Kolb, Love C-USA Honors

Sept. 5, 2006

Houston, Texas - Two senior stars of the Cougars' second-half comeback win over Rice on Saturday night have been named Conference USA Players of the Week. Quarterback Kevin Kolb picked up offensive honors, while nose tackle Marquay Love nailed down the special teams accolades.

Kolb led the Cougars back from a 16-point third-quarter deficit, guiding UH to 17 points to take the lead away and with it, keep the coveted Bayou Bucket on the Houston campus. Kolb was 22-of-35 for 233 yards and three touchdowns. He threw scoring a strike to Vincent Marshall to bring the Cougars to within six, and then hooked up with Anthony Alridge for his final TD.

As for Love, he blocked a Rice extra point in the second quarter that turned out to be the difference in the game. The Owls exploded for 27 second-quarter points; however, Love broke through on the PAT and swatted away his school-record sixth kick. Love also forced a fumble and recorded two tackles for loss from his nose guard position.

After trailing 30-14 towards the end of the third quarter, the Cougars mounted a comeback to overtake the Owls. The 16-point rally was the biggest road deficit overcome in school history.

UTEP's Quintin Demps was the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week.
