TULSA, Okla., Nov. 8 (UPI) -- No. 13 Houston scrambled to a comeback win Saturday when Matt Hogan hit a 51-yard field goal with time expiring to defeat Tulsa 46-45.
Houston's Tim Monroe was in the right place to recover an onsides kick with 21 seconds left and the Cougars (8-1, 4-1 C-USA) trailing 45-43.

Tulsa (4-5, 2-3) lost for the fourth straight time.
