Offense explosion: UTEP stuns No. 12 Houston

BY foxsports • October 4, 2009

Case Keenum's career night couldn't save the Cougars.

Donald Buckram and Texas-El Paso ran all over Houston's BCS-busting ambition, knocking off the 12th-ranked Cougars in a 58-41 shootout Saturday night.

Keenum completed 51 of 76 passes for 536 yards and five touchdowns. Against the Miners, it just wasn't enough.

A week after knocking off their second Big 12 opponent, Houston's high-flying offense couldn't keep pace with Buckram's 262 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
