Keenum throws 5 TDs in 68-28 rout for Houston

Sep 5, 2010 - 3:37 AM HOUSTON(AP) -- Case Keenum completed 17 of 22 passes for 274 yards and five touchdowns to lead Houston to a 68-28 rout of Texas State Saturday in front of the largest crowd to watch a game at Robertson Stadium, 32,119.

Keenum only played the first half, but had touchdown passes of 40 yards to Michael Hayes, 63 yards to Patrick Edwards, 25 and 21 yards to Kierrie Johnson and 17 yards to James Cleveland as Houston built a 54-7 halftime lead.

Keenum, who also had two interceptions, set career school records for completions (1,098) and yards passing (13,179) in the win - breaking the marks held by current Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb.

Bryce Beall rushed five times for 48 yards and two touchdowns in the first half for the Cougars, who extended their home winning streak to a school-record 16 games and finished with 499 yards of offense.

Edwards finished with four catches for 80 yards; Cleveland also had four catches for 45 yards; and Johnson had three grabs for 61 yards. All three only played the first half.

Texas State quarterback Tyler Arndt was 14-of-22 passing for 153 yards and a touchdown, and added two touchdown runs. Karrington Bush and Dexter Imade both had 73 yards rushing for the Bobcats.

Texas State cut the lead to 13-7 on a 14-yard TD run by Arndt that capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive with 4:26 left in the first half. But Houston responded with 55 unanswered points before Arndt found Eric Gentry for a 2-yard score in the third.
