HOUSTON -- Houston coach Kevin Sumlin is missing three helmets that were swiped during the on-field celebration following this weekend's 29-28 win over Texas Tech.
The helmets remained missing Tuesday despite Sumlin's plea via Twitter a day before:
"Saturday night was fun, but it will be hard for 3 of our guys to play this week without their helmets. Please return, NO QUESTIONS ASKED."
The coach of the 12th-ranked Cougars remains optimistic that the helmets will be found before Saturday's game at UTEP.
