HOUSTON, Tx. – The Houston Cougars took the wind out of the Navy Midshipmen`s sails in this Black Friday blowout.

Navy tried to keep the game close in the first quarter, but by the end of the fourth, the Cougs won by a commanding 21 points, locking up the West Division title. The final score was Houston 52 and Navy 31.

After last week’s first defeat of the season against Connecticut, that most blame on injuries, the Cougs were looking to show the rest of the nation they deserve a bowl game.

The Cougars will now face either Temple or South Florida for the AAC Title next Saturday, at a sure to be filled TDECU Stadium.
