C-USA CHAMPIONS!

HOUSTON, Tex. - Senior quarterback Austin Davis threw four touchdown passes and No. 23 Southern Mississippi ruined Houston's perfect season and Bowl Championship Series hopes with a 49-28 victory over the sixth-ranked Cougars on Saturday.

It was star quarterback Case Keenum's last home game for Houston for sure, and could've also been the finale for coach Kevin Sumlin, who has been mentioned as a top candidate for virtually every higher-profile job opening.

Houston (12-1) was poised to impress a national-television audience and representatives from the Orange and Sugar Bowl, who attended Saturday's game. Keenum could've also made one last case for an invitation to next week's Heisman Trophy ceremony.

Instead, the Golden Eagles (11-2) turned it into their big day, shackling Houston's high-powered offense and striking with several big plays of their own to win their first conference championship game and fifth C-USA Title.
