I’m going to miss Brandon Wilson. That kickoff return was a saving grace as Louisville was looking to pull away with the momentum.
The game was close throughout, and the biggest lead of the day came when Louisville went up 17-10 in the third quarter, a score that held for exactly one play; Houston’s Brandon Wilson returned the ensuing kickoff back for an 100-yard touchdown. From there, the teams traded scores, and Houston took the lead for good on a touchdown with 3:16 remaining in the game. Louisville had a chance to tie the game once again on a 53-yard field goal attempt, which Houston blocked, sealing the win.
