    HOUSTON (AP) -- Mike Clark made a 35-yard field goal with 4:50 to play as Houston beat Southern Methodist 17-15 on Saturday night.

    Houston's Ronnie Braxton makes a key sack on SMU QB Josh McCown to take the Mustangs out of field goal range.
    SMU had its own chance for a winning field goal, but Jacob Crowley missed a 39-yarder with 1:34 to play.

    The Mustangs took their first lead with 8:06 remaining when Josh McCown threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to John Hampton. Coach Mike Cavan opted to go for a 2-point conversion, but McCown's pass fell incomplete and Southern Methodist held a 15-14 lead.

    Jason McKinley led Houston (2-3) with 338 yards passing, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

    Kendall Williams is congratulated.
    McCown threw for 326 yards for SMU (1-4), but was intercepted four times. Crowley kicked three field goals before the fourth-quarter miss.

    The Cougars opened the scoring with their longest drive of the season, a 14-play, 85-yard march in the first quarter. Kendall Williams scored on a 9-yard shovel pass from Jason McKinley.
