The Cougars had almost no margin for error, and now they've got a serious blemish. Houston has been a delightful college football story. The No. 6 Cougars entered Saturday 5-0, and the combination of their Week 1 win against Oklahoma and an eventual meeting with Louisville gave them a strong Playoff angle. If Houston could go 12-0 in the regular season and win the American's championship game, the Cougars would be likelier than not to make the top four.
Will Worth threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score in a 46-40 win by Midshipmen.
