From an LA Times article about the 1989 SMU-UH game
"Houston also set seven SWC records, including most push-ups by a team mascot. At each game, after each Houston touchdown, Cougar-suited Jason Lee flops down on the sideline and does the same number of pushups as points on the scoreboard.
Saturday, Lee did 682 pushups. Naturally, that also broke the record of 567, which was set last year by his predecessor, Mike Pede, in an 82-28 victory over Tulsa."
If you would have stopped after the 1st half, you would have only done 279 push-ups for the day. UH scored 59 points in the 1st half.
