Cougars extra points: Houston 45, Rice 27

2. Now about that up-tempo offense …

Not sold yet? It was the first game, but the Cougars were lucky things didn’t get out of hand in the first half when the offense looked out of sync. And yet, the Cougars still managed to put up 45 points. Three straight touchdown drives covered 75, 70 and 68 yards. Time of possession: 56 seconds, 48 seconds and 1 minute, 48 seconds.

Here’s a telling stat: even when the Cougars were struggling in the first half they still averaged a healthy 7.1 yards per play. In the second half? A whopping 13.3.
