That's right, the TicketCity Bowl at the Cotton Bowl against Penn state. A team loaded with drama and distractions.
The cougars finish 20-11 with a new coach Tony Levine.
And start 2012 huge; Patrick Edwards with the second of his first half touchdown catches..
Case Keenum racks up 380 passing yards in the first half alone on the way to a 24-7 U of H lead. Keenum finishes with three touchdown passes and 532 yards in the air.
