Recap


Case Keenum threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns, pushing Houston to a 38-34 victory over visiting UCLA.
 
Keenum, who gained a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA this offseason in part due to an ACL injury suffered in last season’s loss to the Bruins, tossed his first touchdown pass of the game with eight seconds left in the first half when he hit Tyron Carrier on a 23-yard pass to five the Cougars a 31-14 halftime advantage.
 
The Bruins rallied with 14 unanswered points in the third quarter with a pair of 1-yard runs to trim the deficit to 31-28, but Keenum answered with his second scoring pass, which came as a result of Cougars’ offensive lineman Chris Thompson recovering a fumble by Carrier in the end zone for a 38-28 lead.
 
UCLA used a 15-play drive to move within field-goal range on the following drive, but kicker Kip Smith missed a 32-yard attempt. Backup quarterback Richard Brehaut led a desperation scoring drive when he hit Anthony Barr on an 11-yard pass with 1:19 remaining, but Smith’s extra-point attempt was blocked.

UCLA starting quarterback Kevin Prince, who missed the final six games of last season with a knee injury, left the game suffering from concussion symptoms after he was tackled by D.J. Hayden out of bounds in the second quarter. He was replaced by Brehaut and did not return.
 
With 340 total yards in this contest, Keenum moved past Ty Detmer and Colt Brennan into fifth place on the NCAA career total offense list with 14,788 total yards. He needs 3,177 passing yards to become the NCAA’s all-time leader.
