2011 Conference USA Championship Halftime Score: Upset Alert Still On

The Houston Cougars' path to the BCS won't be quite as easy as certain corners of Vegas had predicted -- the Coogs were favored over Southern Miss by two touchdowns -- but UH is still in respectable shape. The score at halftime of the 2011 Conference USA Championship Game is 21-14, Golden Eagles.

Wind-afflicted Case Keenum has only 152 yards on 22 attempts, though SMU's D deserves plenty of credit in keeping the nation's top offense contained for 30 minutes. With the ball to start the third quarter, the Eagles boast the momentum in addition to the lead.

Austin Davis has 39 yards rushing and 164 through the air, along with all three touchdowns. Dominique Sullivan is the box score star so far, having produced 85 yards worth of catches.

Very interested to see whether the SMU defense can keep holding on.
