    Game is final with No. 19/13 Louisville taking the 20-13 win over Houston.

    Houston picks up a pair of first downs on their drive - only had one up to that point in the second half but forced to punt with 5:43 left in the game.

    Defense holds up another Louisville drive with a stop on third down. Only 8:24 left in the game but only a one-possesion game at this point.

    Houston offense struggling to get things going in the second half - only one first down on three drives so far. Richie Leone hits his best punt of the night good for 62 yards to help flip the field with 13:12 left in the game.

    Houston defense gets the stop on 3rd-and-2. Takes over on their own 20 yard line with 14:06 left in the game.


    Cougars make three TFL on that scoring drive but results in three points for the Cardinals. 20-13 lead with 2:55 left in the third quarter.

    Louisville scores a touchdown on their opening drive to regain the lead. Adrian McDonald ejected for punching following the score - will miss the first half of next week.

    Houston is 5-1 when leading at halftime this year.


    Kyle Bullard makes a 22-yard field goal to give Houston their first lead of the game.

    Greg Wards makes his first career catch on his second snap at the wide receiver position. Good for a first down and gain of 7.

    Houston throws an interception off Daniel Spencer's hands but a roughing the passer penalty keeps the Houston drive alive.

    Great play by Trevon Stewart on the punt - threw his blocker off and right into the Louisville return man. Muffed punt results in the first turnover of the game and Trevon's fifth fumble recovery of the year - leads the nation in that category.

    Kenneth Farrows catches a pass out of the backfield for a third-and-long conversion and then takes the next play straight up the middle to tie the game at 10-10. Fifth rushing touchdown of the year for Farrow, tying him with Ryan Jackson for the team lead.


    Kyle Bullard drills a 46-yard field goal on his first career attempt. 12:12 remaining in the second quarter.

    U of L connects on a 37-yard field goal to go up 10-0.

    Derrick Mathews records his 6th sack of the year on first down for a loss of 18. First quarter comes to a close after that.

    Louisville scores on their opening drive capping a 12-play, 77-yard drive taking 6:33 off the clock.

    Cougars first drive ends on a 4th-and-10 attempt. Xavier Maxwell broke the first tackle but unable to pick up the remainder of the yardage.

    Demarcus Ayers returns the opening kickoff 65 yards for this third straight game with a 40+ yard return.
