No. 6 Houston rolls UConn
Greg Ward Jr. threw for a career-high 389 yards and accounted for five touchdowns in just more than three quarters to help sixth-ranked Houston beat Connecticut 42-14 on Thursday night.
The victory was a bit of redemption for the Cougars, whose only loss last season came in a 20-17 defeat by the Huskies when they were 10-0.
Ward had touchdown runs of 30 and 10 yards and threw scoring passes of 3, 15 and 4 yards.
