Houston just put the finishing touches on a 49-28 win over SMU to improve to 5-0. The Coogs could be inching closer to the top 25 if they keep rolling. QB Greg Ward had an impressive night: 16-of-18 passing, 243 yards, 82 rushing yards and 4 rushing TDs. Definitely one of the best players in the Group of 5 conferences.


Ward runs for another TD

Greg Ward Jr. now has 11 rushing touchdowns this season, tied with Leonard Fournette for the FBS lead. Ward had 8 rushing TDs in the previous 2 seasons combined. Houston leads SMU 49-21 in the fourth on ESPN2.


Houston takes a 2-touchdown lead

Greg Ward Jr. ran for a 10-yard TD, his second straight game with 3 rushing TDs. The Cougars lead the Mustangs 35-21 in the third on ESPN2.

Houston's defense starting to come alive here at TDECU Stadium. SMU's last four drives have ended in two fumbles, turnover on downs and a punt. They're getting more pressure on SMU QB Matt Davis than they were earlier. Cougars in control, up 35-21 with 6:24 to go in Q3 and with a chance to widen the gap some more here.

I watched both of these QBs last year and seeing them tonight, it's clear both Houston's Greg Ward and SMU's Matt Davis have taken significant steps forward in their development. Both are having strong nights so far. It's all tied up 21-21 late in the second quarter in Houston.
