Keenum sharp in Houston’s 38-34 win over UCLABy CHRIS DUNCAN, AP Sports Writer Sunday, Sep 4, 2011
Keenum completed 30 of 40 passes without an interception in his first game since tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament early in a loss to UCLA last September in the Rose Bowl. The NCAA granted him a sixth year of eligibility in January, allowing Keenum to resume his pursuit of several NCAA records.
He looked like his old self, and so did the Cougars’ powerful offense, gaining 469 total yards.
UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince left in the second quarter with a concussion and Richard Brehaut replaced him. Brehaut went 17 for 26 for 264 yards and two touchdowns.
