HOUSTON, Texas (AP) - Case Keenum ran 4 yards for a touchdown with 49 seconds left to give No. 17 Houston a 29-28 comeback win over Texas Tech on Saturday night.

The Cougars trailed 21-10 in the first half, but held Tech's high-powered offense to one second half score to come away with the win.

Houston was playing as a ranked team for the first time in 18 years after knocking off then No. 5 Oklahoma State two weeks ago. A record crowd of 32,114, including Phi Slama Jama stars Hakeem Olajuwon Clyde Drexler showed up to cheer them on.

Houston (3-0) kept the game-winning, 95-yard drive going with a 7-yard pass to Patrick Edwards on fourth-and-3.
