Houston Loses QB Keenum For Season

HOUSTON -- Houston quarterback Case Keenum is out for the season after injuring his knee in a loss to UCLA.

The Cougars also lost Keenum's backup, Cotton Turner, for the season Saturday night with a broken collar bone.

Keenum, who is the fifth-leading passer in NCAA history, tore his anterior cruciate ligament trying to make a tackle after an interception in the second quarter of the 31-13 loss.

Turner broke his clavicle in the third quarter.

Keenum, a senior, had 636 yards passing and five touchdowns this season.

The Cougars will likely go with freshman Terrance Broadway in the wake of the injuries.

Keenum suffered a concussion last week trying to make a tackle after an interception against UTEP.

    JD, why on earth are you even on this website and showing your ignorance? Houston was #23 and UCLA was not even close to the Top 25.

    Why on Earth was a Pac-10 team playing a CuppyUSA team?

    That is a major blow to the Houston team. Saturday night was sure a nightmare for the Cougars.
