Team preview: Houston
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college football season, exclusively on Insider.
The Cougars lost to host Hawaii, 54-48, in triple overtime in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl. It was a thrilling finish that left the Cougars one win shy of one of Briles' big goals.
"We would have liked to finish it up with that win," Briles said after the Cougars finished spring practice. "Eight wins is hard to get to. It's like a magic number. We'll keep striving to kick it up a notch."
