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.
