_Houston beat TCU 49 to 46 in spite of nine turnovers and a feisty Horned Frog attack. Former Heisman winner Pat Sullivan’s team jumped out 21-7 and held a 21-14 lead at the half. Houston quarterback Jimmy Klingler rotated with Donald Douglas most of the season, but an injury gave Klingler the start. He rewarded head coach John Jenkins with four picks. _
In the second half Klingler and running back Lamar Smith took over. Smith ran 29-yards for his second touchdown of the day, and Klingler hit Ron Peters to give the Cougars their first lead, 28-21. TCU fired right back with a Leon Clay touchdown pass and a Curtis Modkins 55-yard touchdown run.
