C-USA Championship Game: Southern Miss (10-2) at Houston (12-0)

Houston Cougars Football 2011
Case Keenum QB

Much more than the Conference USA Championship is on the line Saturday afternoon for No. 6 Houston, as the Cougars will land in their first BCS bowl game with a win at home over Southern Miss – it’s also expected to be the final home game for UH coach Kevin Sumlin, who has been targeted by schools such as Arizona State, Texas A&M and UCLA. Houston is a 14-point college football bets favorite on WagerWeb.com.

One year removed from a 5-7 season marred by an early season-ending knee injury to star quarterback Case Keenum, Houston joins top-ranked LSU as the only undefeated teams in the country. Making its third C-USA title game appearance, the Cougars have a chance to earn their first-ever BCS bid with a win and become the first team from the league to play in the Bowl Championship Series.

Southern Miss has a very good offense that averages 34.1 points per game. The offense is led by Austin Davis. The senior quarterback has thrown for 3,052 yards and 24 touchdowns this season. He has thrown a touchdown pass in 11 straight games. The Golden Eagles have the top rushing attack in the conference as well with an average of 207.8 yards per game on the ground.

Looking for their first C-USA title since beating Southern Mississippi 34-20 in the 2006 conference championship game, the Cougars lead the nation in total offense (613.3 yards per game), scoring (52.7 points per game) and passing yards (449.7 per game).

Keenum, the NCAA career leader in passing yards, touchdown passes and total offense, has completed 73.2 percent of his passes this season for 4,726 yards, with 43 TDs and just three interceptions. He was 44 of 54 for 559 yards with five TDs and an interception in his only previous game against the Golden Eagles, a 50-43 home win in 2009. Keenum needs 274 yards passing to become the first player in FBS history with three 5,000-yard seasons.

The Golden Eagles may have the best defense Houston has seen all season, ranking 26th overall (338.4 yards per game) and 25th in scoring (20.5 points per game). Southern Miss also has a school-record seven interception returns for touchdowns this season.

The Golden Eagles have lost three straight games at Robertson Stadium, including a 34-20 loss to the Cougars in the 2006 conference championship game. Southern Miss will be the first top-25 opponent at Robertson Stadium since 2008 (No. 25 Tulsa).

Sportsbook Advisor Take: We are all on Southern Miss. We love the way they have played all year and realize this is the chance to really do something nationally for these guys.  Hosuton is a good football team. S. Miss is a good team as well and has a lot of charater.  They may or may not win but we like getting the 13-14 points.
