This latest written series will cover the 19 most significant , for positive or negative reasons, Cougar football games of the 21st century. The word significant is important as I tried to choose 19 games that had a large-scale impact on the program.
There are many memorable games I won’t include, because while they were fun in the moment and in reminiscing, they didn’t have a significant impact on the program. A good example of this would be the 2009 win at Tulsa. In that game the Coogs scored a touchdown and recovered an onside kick to set up a Matt Hogan game-winning field goal, all in less than a minute of game action.
That moment was insanely fun but didn’t really change the course of that season.
In this piece, they list their honorable mentions.
