Saturday University of Houston quarterback Kevin Kolb will try to lead the Cougars to an 8-3 record with a win over SMU. Houston is currently 7-3 and atop the West Division in Conference USA with a 5-1 conference record after beating Tulsa, 27-10, on Nov. 4. Houston’s three losses this season were by a combined eight points against Miami, Louisiana-Lafayette, and Southern Miss. The Cougars are now receiving votes in the polls after winning three straight.
Kolb currently holds Houston records in completions, attempts, plays, touchdowns responsible for, total offense, and touchdowns to different receivers. Kolb and senior wide receiver Vincent Marshall have connected for a Houston career record 22 touchdowns. He also leads current D-IA quarterbacks in completions, plays, total offense, touchdowns responsible for and starts. Kolb also is one of five finalists for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm award.
Be sure to watch Kolb on Cold Pizza Wednesday, Nov. 8 on ESPN2.
Kolb also has a weekly teleconference to tout his greatness. This week, Kate Hairopoulos was the only one that bothered to dial in.
