    Houston, Texas - FootballScoop.com has named Houston's Kliff Kingsbury its National Offensive Coordinator of the Year. Kingsbury won the award over Oklahoma State's Todd Monken, Baylor's Phillip Montgomery and Clemson's Chad Morris.

    Kingsbury was the play-caller for Houston's explosive offense, directing the 12-1 Cougars to No. 1 national rankings in total offense (599.0), passing offense (443.8) and scoring offense (50.8). Houston was led in 2011 by the NCAA's all-time leading passer, Case Keenum, who broke career marks for passing yardage (18,685), total offense (19,572), completions (1,501), touchdown passes (152), total touchdowns (175), 300-yard games (38) and 5,000-yard seasons (3) this year. He is also Houston's career record holder for victories (36) and has helped lead UH to the 2012 TicketCity Bowl, where the Cougars will face Penn State on Jan. 2 at the Cotton Bowl Stadium.

    Houston has been one of the country's more balanced clubs with Kingsbury calling the plays. UH has three different players with 70 (or more) receptions this season, including a pair of 1,000-yard receivers, Patrick Edwards (1,524) and Justin Johnson (1,081). Edwards (18) and Johnson (11) have the most combined TD receptions in the country at 29.

    Houston's rushing attack has also been solid. The Cougars average 155.2 yards on the ground, with sophomore Charles Sims (782) and senior Michael Hayes (707) each topping the 700-yard plateau.

    Tickets for the 2012 TicketCity Bowl are on sale now. Fans can order by calling the UH Athletics Ticket Office at 713-GO-COOGS, or online at UHCougars.com. Fans are encouraged to buy their bowl game tickets through UH Athletics, as their purchase directly supports the student-athletes. All UH tickets are located behind the Cougar bench.
