    This game ends like the other Houston losses - Cougars with a chance to win/tie at the end of the game but comes up short. Expect these growing pains with such a young team, lessons learned are costly but valuable.

    Sixth fumble recovery of the year for Trevon and that's a new UH record. Way to set the record in style, No. 23.

    Third touchdown of the day scored on third down as Brandon Kay rushes for 14 yards on the score.

    John O'Korn hit as he tries to step up in the pocket and fumbles the ball. Second fumble of the game for the freshman and the Bearcats take over on the UH 13.


    End of the first half with Cougars down by 10.


    Cincinnati scores with Chris Moore's second touchdown of the game with 1:29 left in the half.

    Steven Taylor grabs his first career interception giving UH the ball 1st-and-goal on the UC 10. Two plays later, Deontay Greenberry catches his 10th touchdown of the year to cut the lead to 10-7.

    With the weather and field conditions, Cougars opt to go for it on 4th-and-17. O'Korn throws it up for Greenberry but falls incomplete.

    Adrian McDonald grabs his fourth intreception fo teh year and sixth of the season. Cougars in business at the Cincinnati 20. 34th turnover of the year.

    43-yard punt by Richie Leone downed at the one-yard line by Alex Tillman to start Cincinnati's fourth drive of the day.

    Cougars defense holds again!Tomme Mark and Steven Taylor combine on the 4th-and-goal stop. Take over on the one yard line.

    Cinci drives ends with a missed 41-yard field goal. Cougars take over on their own 24 with 8:29 left in the quarter. Eric Braswell made a big TFL on first down to help slow down that drive once UC got close to the scoring zone.
    Promising first drive results in a turnover inside the UC red zone. John O'Korn and Kenneth Farrow can't hook up on the zone read attempt.
    Cincinnati wins the toss and elects to defer. Cougars get the ball to start the game.
