QB Case Keenum

Houston, Sr.

Last week: 26-of-41 passing for 458 yards and five TDs; six rushes for nine yards in 48-23 win over North Texas.

Season: 56-of-81 passing for 768 yards and six TDs; 13 rushes for 39 yards.

The Watchman is a sucker for the pursuit of history. Keenum continued his, climbing up the career yardage lists with his 13th game of 400-plus yards and the first in his comeback from knee surgery. He's now fourth in passing yards (14,354) and total yardage (15,255), supplanting Colt Brennan and Colt McCoy, respectively, and tied with Danny Wuerffel for sixth all-time with his 114th TD pass. Keenum did most of his damage in the second half, hitting on 17 of 22 attempts for 284 yards and four TDs before sitting with nearly 14 minutes remaining. Most importantly in his Heisman pursuit, Keenum moved Houston to 2-0.

Next up: Saturday at Louisiana Tech
