ESPN's College GameDay is in Houston for the first time ever and already the signage is strong in Texas. GameDay is in Houston in an extremely rare appearance, given Houston is in Conference-USA and GameDay has traditionally been reserved for bigger programs. The No. 11 Houston Cougars will take on in-state rival Southern Methodist. Quarterback Case Keenum is the show everyone is there to see however, as he already holds the NCAA records for total offense (18,434), passing touchdowns (144) and passing yards (17,537). Houston fans know that Keenum can break all of the records, potentially paving the way tonight against the SMU Mustangs.
Keenum is just seven completions away from setting the all-time completions record with 1,404 and he needs one more 300-yard passing game to tie Timmy Chang's record of 36 300-yard passing days.
