No. 13 Houston 46, at Tulsa 45: Matt Hogan kicked a 51-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Cougars (8-1, 4-1) over the Golden Hurricane (4-5, 2-3) in a Conference USA game. The field goal finished off another thrilling comeback led by quarterback Case Keenum. After getting sacked on a potential tying two-point conversion with 21 seconds left, Keenum got the Cougars into field goal range after an onside kick to add to his impressive Heisman resume. Keenum finished with 522 yards on 40-for-60 passing with three touchdown passes. It was the second straight game with more than 500 yards passing for the nation's most prolific passer. The Cougars rushed onto the field and hoisted Hogan into the air after he connected on the longest kick of his career. His previous long was 34 yards.
