DALLAS -- A grim-faced Tom Herman could hear the whoops and hollers of SMU players as the Houston coached tried to explain a shocking 38-16 loss to the Mustangs on Saturday night.Was it hard to listen to that celebration?More than you know, Herman said.Ben Hicks threw for three touchdowns and ran for another score in SMUs first win over a ranked team in five years.The Cougars (6-2, 3-2 American) lost for the second time after a 5-0 start that included a season-opening win over then-No. 3 Oklahoma that vaulted Houston into the Top 10.The last time the Mustangs (3-4, 1-2) beat a team ranked 11th or higher, they were No. 4 and finishing off a near-perfect 1982 season (11-0-1) with a 7-3 victory over sixth-ranked Pittsburgh in the Cotton Bowl. SMU tied No. 7 Texas A&M in 1994.It was SMUs fourth win in 20 tries against Houston since returning from the so-called death penalty in 1989. The first loss was 95-21.For us to come in and get a signature win like this is huge, SMU coach Chad Morris said. And I shared with our players for the last two weeks, `It just takes one (win) to start a revolution. It just takes one win to put some wind in our sails.Greg Ward Jr. couldnt shake a persistent SMU pass rush or find receivers for big plays, finishing with 241 yards passing -- almost 100 below his average -- and just 3 yards rushing on 17 carries thanks to seven sacks.One of the sacks was for an 18-yard loss to the Houston 22 when coach Tom Herman went for it on fourth down trailing 28-14 early in the fourth quarter.Herman got conservative moments later, choosing a 19-yard field goal attempt on fourth down from the SMU 2. Ty Cummings hit the right upright for his second miss.Immense introspection when you lose a game like that, Herman said. Well leave no stone unturned to figure out why that happened.Hicks was 16 of 31 for 228 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown to a wide-open James Proche for a 28-7 lead in the final seconds of the first half. SMU appeared content to run out the clock before a 40-yard run by Braeden West, who had 115 yards rushing and a punctuating touchdown late.THE TAKEAWAYHouston: Herman figured to be the hottest name in coaching for the offseason searches of LSU and any other high-profile programs that might be looking. Perhaps that doesnt change, but this October isnt helping. Convincing wins over Florida State in the Peach Bowl and the Sooners in this years opener have lost some luster.SMU: Morris, the second-year coach who went 2-10 in his debut season, has a good chance to build on his biggest win, and one of the programs biggest since the crippling NCAA sanctions almost 30 years ago. The Mustangs faded in the second half after strong early efforts against two other high-scoring Texas teams, Baylor and TCU. They finished the job this time.TONE-SETTING TURNOVERSThe Cougars lost two fumbles in the first quarter and never got their high-powered offense going. Houston was outgained 406-303. When you play a team at their place thats fresh, thats hungry, motivated, to give them life like that, Herman said. Youre playing catch-up the whole game from that point on.CAREER GAMESMU defensive end Jarvis Pruitt recovered one of the fumbles and had three sacks in the Mustangs first win over a ranked team since beating No. 20 TCU 40-33 in overtime in 2011.POLL IMPLICATIONSHouston: The Cougars could tumble all the way out of the rankings after being at No. 6 for several weeks following the victory over the Sooners. The fall has been sudden for a program coming off its first New Years bowl in 30 years and the second 13-win season in program history.UP NEXTHouston: The Cougars start a stretch of three straight home games against UCF next Saturday. That stretch ends against No. 7 Louisville. They also get a bye after nine straight weeks of playing.Its a one-game season to get to that bye week and put everything weve got into protecting our home stadium and preparing and executing better than we did tonight, Herman said.SMU: The Mustangs visit Tulane next Saturday before a home game against Memphis, which just lost its first conference game against Navy.---Online:AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org Diontae Spencer Jersey .

Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital. Real Madrid needed a late goal by substitute Jese Rodriguez to earn a 3-2 victory at Valencia to stay in third place and three points behind its title rivals. http://www.cheapsteelersjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-winston-craig-jersey . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. Tevin Jones Jersey . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. David DeCastro Jersey . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. SILVIS, Ill. -- Zach Johnson has evolved into one of the most consistent players the John Deere Classic has ever seen. Johnson put together another steady round Friday, maintaining a share of the lead despite standout efforts from rookie Patrick Reed and Lucas Glover. Johnson, the defending champion, shot a 5-under 66 to join Reed and Glover atop the leaderboard at 12-under 130 following second-round play. It "was a day of just hanging in there and letting things come. But I like the fact that I dont have to be perfect and I can still play here," Johnson said. Reed shot a 63 in the morning session, just one year after missing the cut at TPC Deere Run -- and Glover finished a shot better at 9 under on Friday. Australias Matt Jones is a shot back at 11 under. Troy Matteson leads a pack at 10-under, while three-time winner Steve Stricker is among those contending at 9 under. Two Canadians remain in the field. Brad Hearn (73), from Brantford, Ont., is tied for fifth while Mike Weir (176), from Brights Grove, Ont., is tied for 51st. Brad Fritsch of Edmonton, and Calgarys Stephen Ames did not make the cut. Given how well Johnson has played this course of late, it could take a spectacular weekend to beat him. Johnson has shot 18 consecutive rounds in the 60s at Deere Run -- largely by avoiding big mistakes and scrambling out of small ones -- and his ninth bogey-free round Friday was a tournament record. "Im just comfortable. Im comfortable with every tee shot. Im comfortable with every wind, and clearly Im comfortable on the greens," Johnson said. Consistency has been an issue this season for Glover, but he was just two feet from taking the lead outright heading into Saturday. He missed a 19-foot birdie putt on his final hole to join Johnson and Reed atop the leaderboard. Glover said he ditched plans to take this weekend off and head to Scotland early for the British Open after playing poorly last week. So far, it looks as though a ffew extra rounds have helped Glover find his game.dddddddddddd "I was ecstatic (Thursday) after 3 under ... so you can imagine how I feel," Glover said. "But Im not dumb enough to think its over." Reed, a 22-year-old with two top-10 finishes in 20 events this season, highlighted his strong round with a 37-yard chip for eagle on the 17th hole. Reed, with his wife Justine on the bag as his caddie, is 13-under over his last 27 holes. "She helps me with everything. I never check wind. She tells me what the wind is. Shes always right on that. Most of the time she helps me pick most of my clubs. She seems to know my distances better than I do," Reed said. "Shes great at reading putts, so I kind of have the full package. Its definitely not an I, its definitely a we for us." Matteson had his best performance of 2012
