SMU Vs. Houston Final Score: Cougars Stay On Course, Case Keenum Does Some Stuff

The Houston Cougars welcomed the SMU Mustangs, along with College GameDay for the first time ever, with a whole lot to lose. An unbeaten season, a Conference USA title, and a clear path to a BCS bowl. Kevin Sumlin's crew did not falter, walloping their in-state foes, 37-7, and remaining one of the nation's two unbeaten teams.

And, yes, of course Case Keenum broke a record on the day, even though there were enough footballs to go around for two running backs to score touchdowns. Cotton Turner scored, too! The next to fall:

Sam Khan Jr.@skhanjr Case Keenum has now tied the NCAA record for 300 yard passing games (Timmy Chang, 36). 

It's not all daisies from here on out for Houston, which will have to beat a legit Tulsa team that's yet to lose a C-USA contest just to reach the conference's title game. But nobody's come within a touchdown of the Cougars since September, and UH has to be considered the favorite to represent the outcasts on the big stage.
