Southern Miss Vs. Houston Score: Cougars In Trouble

Just two minutes into the second quarter, the Southern Miss Golden Eagles added their second touchdown of the day to take a 14-0 lead over undefeated Houston in the Conference USA title game. The Cougars, led by quarterback Case Keenum, are the team with the reputation for lighting up the scoreboard but Southern Miss has put heavy pressure on Keenum through much of the first half.

Southern Miss, however, has been the quick strike offense so far, putting up their second touchdown in less than four minutes. Quarterback Austin Davis faked a handoff on playaction to Tracey Lampley. The Golden Eagles' running back darted out of the backfield after the fake, streaking down the left sideline. No one on the Houston defense picked him up coming out of the backfield and Davis hit him in stride, wide open, for the touchdown.

The 14-0 lead has the Cougars crowd stunned.
