Southern Miss Vs. Houston Score Update: Coogs On The Ropes

The Houston Cougars looked set to close it up in the third quarter against Southern Miss, but Case Keenum threw an interception into the end zone. It's been that sort of afternoon in Houston. The ball moved up and down the field, and now it's 35-21, Golden Eagles, with 18 minutes to go. A Desmond Johnson touchdown countered a Michael Hayes rush, and here we are.

If Southern Miss can knock the Cougars out of a BCS bowl game, it will cost each Conference USA school approximately $1.4 million. SMU coach Larry Fedora, on the other hand, stands to make about that much for himself in raises, wherever it is he may end up at some point, so you'll forgive his lack of sympathy, Rice Owls.

It could be good news for the TCU Horned Frogs, who would be the highest-ranked non-AQ conference champion. There's still no guarantee they'd be able to sneak into a BCS game of their own, but let's just say this game is a big deal throughout Texas right now.
