    Cougars final drive ends on 4th-and-goal from the seven yard line with an incomplete pass.

    John O'Korn finds Wayne Beadle on an out route for a 12-yard touchdown pass. Beadle's first career score.

    B.J. Singleton with his third blocked kick of the year on UCF's field goal attempt. UH takes over at midfield.

    O'Korn's pass is tipped once by UCF defender, again by a UH WR and then picked off by UCF. Second turnover of the game.

    UCF's Stanback just rips off a 38-yard touchdown run up the middle breaking a couple of tackles along the way. 98 yard drive for the Knights but they fail to convert the two-point conversion. 19-7 with 10:23 left in the game.

    Zach McMillian is ejected for targetting for trying to break up a deep pass over the middle. That's Houston's 8th penalty of the night (80 yards) vs. UCF's two penalties (16 yards).


    10-play 75 yard 5:28 drive ends with a 15-yard touchdown run by UCF's Staback. Knigths regain the lead, 13-7 with 2:25 left in the third quarter.

    Tonight's attendance is 44,665.

    Cougars turn turnovers into points as John O'Korn runs it into the end zone for his first career rushing touchdown - covering 24 yards. Longest rush of the game.

    Jeremiah Farley forces his second fumble of the season and it's recoved by Cameron Malveaux, his first career.

    Houston's first drive of the second half ends with John O'Korn's fifth interception of the season.


    Moffitt kicks another 40-yard field goal for UCF after defense clamps down when UCF reached the UH territory. Derrick Mathews made his 5th sack of the year on the year.

    DeMarcus Ayers returns the kicoff 42-yards to give Houston their best starting field position of the night.

    45-yard field goal by Shawm Moffitt gives UCF the lead with 8:38 remaining in the first half.

    Well it was fun while it lasted. Houston's streak of 32-straight quarters with a score comes to an end in the first.

    Season-long bomb by Richie Leone as he boots it 65 yards on Houston's second drive.

    Third straight game with an interception. Unofficial, but that puts him as the nation's leading turnover machine with his 10th of the year (4 fumbles, 2 recoveries and 4 interceptions).

    Make that 17 straight games forcing multiple turnovers for that #ThirdWardDefense - Trevon Stewart makes his fourth intercpetion of the year and returns it from the UH 5 to the 21 yard line.


    Cougars force their 30th turnover of the year - just in time as this came in front of their own end zone. Steven Taylor recovers the fumble.

    Houston captains - Zach McMillian, Derrick Mathews, Kenneth Farrow and Joey Mbu win the toss and elect to defer.

    At #19, UCF will be the highest ranked opponent the Cougars have played since taking a 45-35 win at #5/6 Oklahoma State on Sept. 12, 2009
