EL PASO, Texas (AP) -- Case Keenum ran for two touchdowns and threw for another, and Terrance Ganaway scored the game-winner in the fourth quarter of Houston's 34-31 victory against Texas-El Paso on Saturday night.
Anthony Alridge had another big night for the Cougars (5-3, 4-1 Conference USA), rushing for 204 yards on 27 carries. Alridge, who has 1,063 yards on the season, ran 17 yards to the UTEP 2 to set up Ganaway's 1-yard plunge for the lead with 7:01 remaining.
Ganaway's TD was the fifth consecutive lead-changing score. The Miners (4-4, 2-2) had gone ahead 31-27 less than two minutes earlier on Jeff Moturi's 35-yard touchdown catch from Trevor Vittatoe, their second TD connection of the game.
Vittatoe completed just eight of 23 passes, but three were for touchdowns. He had 134 passing yards.
Keenum scored Houston's first two touchdowns on runs of 12 and 20 yards, and he threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Perry McDaniel to give Houston a 24-20 lead early in the fourth quarter. Keenum was 13-of-20 passing for 116 yards and added 72 rushing yards.
The Cougars had 520 yards total offense and no turnovers.
