Cougars Lose to Gamecocks in Liberty Bowl

The last time the Houston Cougars won a bowl game was in 1980 when they defeated Navy 35-0 in the Garden State Bowl. Coach Art Briles, 0-2 in bowl games, was trying to break a six game bowl losing streak for the school. Briles and the Cougars, 10-3 and champions of Conference USA, earned the Liberty Bowl berth against Steve Spurrier and the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Cougars lost to the Gamecocks in Memphis, 44-36. Briles, in his fourth season at Houston, lost his third bowl game and is 26-24 overall at the school. Still, Briles and the Cougars had a great season and we are proud of Art and his team.
