The victory – one of the most significant in school history – could be feeding the Cougars for months to come.
UH (1-0) threw its name into the early season discussion for the College Football Playoff, a seat at the big boy’s table currently not reserved for the Cougars as a member of the Group of Five.
And the win comes just days before UH will make a formal presentation to the Big 12 about joining the league.
Forget the fancy brochures and celebrity testimonials.
All the Cougars need to do is hit play on a 60-minute video of their thorough dismantling of the Sooners, the Big 12’s defending champion and a national semifinalist.
Whether they get into the Big 12 or not, the Cougars showed they are ready to compete with its second straight win over a top 10 program (they beat Florida State in the Peach Bowl).
UH also beat its highest-ranked opponent since a 29-15 win over No. 3 Texas on Nov. 10, 1984. (More at Houston Chronicle)
