Cougar Rusher Honored by League

HOUSTON, Texas (Sept. 18) For the second consecutive week Conference USA has honored a University of Houston Cougar with its weekly player-of-the-week award, as sophomore running back Joffrey Reynolds (Tyler, Texas) picks up this week's C-USA Offensive Player of the Week crown. Last week wide receiver Brandon Middleton received league accolades for his performance on the field.

Behind the career-best night of Reynolds the Cougars picked up their first win of the season, a thrilling 31-30 come-from-behind victory over league foe Army at John O'Quinn Field at Robertson Stadium. Reynolds rushed for 201 yards and three touchdowns on 34 carries, as UH rallied from both a 17-3 and 30-18 deficits. Reynolds also added four catches for 39 yards in the crucial league win.

Reynolds scored on a one-yard plunge in the third quarter to cut the Army lead to 17-12. He later added a 25-yard jaunt down the sideline to give the Cougars a brief 18-17 lead in the fourth quarter. His seven-yard run with seven minutes to play began the Cougars' second comeback. Reynolds' effort was the first 100-yard performance of his career.

For the game the Cougars generated a season-high 524 yards of total offense, including 336 through the air. It was the first 500-yard total offense performance for the Cougars in almost two years.

Next up for the Cougars is a trip to Austin to take on the 15th ranked Texas Longhorns. It is the first meeting between the former Southwest Conference and interstate rivals since 1995, when the fabled SWC broke up.
