Cougars quarterback piling up the numbers

Houston quarterback Kevin Kolb's resume keeps growing. Kolb threw for 208 yards and two touchdowns in his most recent outing to become the Conference USA's all-time total offense leader, leading the Cougars to a come-from-behind 34-17 victory over Texas-El Paso last Saturday at Robertson Stadium in Houston.

Kolb also added 54 yards rushing to become just the 10th player in NCAA Division I-A history to compile more than 12,000 career yards. He has a C-USA record 12,150 total offense (11,458 passing, 692 rushing). Kolb surpassed Louisville's Chris Redman for the milestone.

In eight games, Kolb has racked up 2,303 total passing yards, including four 300-yard games. Kolb's total passing leads the league and ranks seventh in the nation with an average of 287.88 yards per game.

ECU vs. USM part of pay-per-view twinbill

Conference USA and CSTV Networks, Inc., have announced that today's C-USA football contests featuring Central Florida at Houston and East Carolina at Southern Miss will be available across the nation as part of a special pay-per-view event.

The special presentation of these matchups will be available live and on-demand via Internet video streaming. The UCF at Houston game, which begins at 3:30 p.m., and the East Carolina at Southern Miss game, which begins at 7:30 p.m., are also available on CSTV.

Hokies tame Tigers in key ACC battle

The Virginia Tech Hokies went hunting big game on Thursday night and bagged the tenth-ranked Clemson Tigers 24-7 before 66,233 fans at Lane Stadium. The critical win bumped Tech to 6-2 overall and 3-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, while Clemson fell to 7-2, 4-2 in the conference, according to a report at

Just as in the victory last week over Southern Miss, the rushing game and the defense did most of the damage in the win. Branden Ore became the first Tech back to ever post back-to-back 200-yard games. On the other side of the ball, the defense was especially stout in stuffing the Tigers' vaunted offensive attack.

Clemson's offense came in with the nation's top-ranked scoring offense (42.4 ppg), fourth-rankied rushing offense (259.4 ypg), and sixth-ranked total offense (454.9 ypg). Against the Hokies, the Tigers mustered just seven points, 80 yards on the ground, and 166 yards overall.

"It's so satisfying to have a great team win," Hokies coach Frank Beamer said. "We did it the right way — we played well and didn't commit many penalties. I thought our defense was outstanding and our offense did what we needed to do to win."
