SAN ANTONIO (AP) Houston's B.J. Singleton blocked a field goal that was returned for a key touchdown late in the third quarter and later intercepted a pass that helped the Cougars stay undefeated in a 59-28 victory over UTSA on Saturday.
Ahead 24-21 late in the third quarter, it appeared UH (4-0) would be in a tie game when UTSA (2-3) lined up for a 29-yard field goal. But Singleton broke through the middle and blocked Sean Ianno's kick, and Brandon Wilson returned it 78 yards to give UH a 31-21 lead with 3:11 left in the quarter. In the opening minute of the fourth, Singleton intercepted Eric Soza.
The Cougars have a bye and open play in the new American Athletic Conference at home against Memphis on Oct. 12.
The Roadrunners, who have home losses to UH and Oklahoma State, play next week at Marshall in Conference USA.
