The last undefeated Group of 5 team goes down as UConn beats No. 19 Houston 20-17. The Huskies, who held Houston to 318 yards and harassed QB Kyle Postma all day (three sacks), are now bowl-eligible. It's a huge win for Bob Diaco and Co. For Houston (10-1), it now faces a must-win next Friday vs. Navy for the AAC West Division title and a berth in the conference championship game.

UConn punted, Houston used all three timeouts. One last chance for No. 19 Houston (11-0) to remain unbeaten, trailing the Huskies 20-17 with under two minutes to go.

UConn stops Houston, forces the Cougars to turn it over on downs. With just more than two minutes left, the Huskies are nearing an upset of the No. 19 team in the nation, leading 20-17.

Looks like Houston will have to go to starting QB Greg Ward Jr. because backup Kyle Postma, who started this game for Ward, just took a hard hit and is apparently injured. No. 19 Houston trails UConn 20-17 with 3:32 remaining.


Houston strikes back with TD on kickoff

Houston answered the UConn TD right away, as Javin Webb returned the ensuing kickoff 94 yards for a TD to cut the deficit to 20-17.


UConn extends lead with trick play

Garrett Anderson took a backwards pass then hit Noel Thomas for a 45-yard TD, to extend UConn's lead over undefeated Houston to 20-10.


Houston draws closer with long TD

Kyle Postma hit Chance Allen in the corner of the end zone for a 38-yard TD, as undefeated Houston trails UConn 13-10 in the fourth quarter.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

UConn's defense doing a stellar job holding down No. 19 Houston; the Huskies lead 10-3 late in the third quarter. Houston has only 176 offensive yards. Backup QB Kyle Postma started, presumably because starter Greg Ward Jr. isn't 100% coming off an ankle injury suffered last week vs. Memphis. Postma has thrown for only 103 yards, 0 TD and 1 INT. At some point, you have to wonder if Houston coach Tom Herman will entertain the idea of inserting Ward, simply for a spark.
