(WMC-TV) - Freshman kicker Jake Elliott connected on field goals from 33, 50, 24, 38 and 42 for the Tigers, but it wasn't enough to beat Houston, falling 25-15.

John O'Korn threw for 198 yards and a touchdown and Kenneth Farrow ran for two second-half touchdowns to help the Cougars remain undefeated.
