FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Houston coach Kevin Sumlin doesn't have to hear any more about that nearly three-decade postseason winless drought for the Cougars. It's finally over.
Case Keenum ran for two touchdowns and threw for another and the Cougars wrapped up Sumlin's first season with a 34-28 victory over Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl on Wednesday for their first bowl victory since 1980.
Houston (8-5) ended an eight-game bowl losing streak, avoiding a record the Cougars didn't want to share with Notre Dame. The Irish won the Hawaii bowl last week to end their NCAA-record bowl losing streak at nine.
