Oral History: Matt Hogan On The 2011 Season

Crawford Jones (13) and Matt Hogan (46).

In this episode of Cougar History Conversations, Ryan Monceaux and Brad Towns chat with UH great Matt Hogan. The conversation covers quite a bit:

  • the injuries to Case Keenum and Cotton Turner in 2010,
  • finding out that Case would be back in 2011,
  • the magical ride of that season,
  • setting an NCAA record for extra points,
  • the C-USA title game,
  • how things went down when Kevin Sumlin departed,
  • his position coach Tony Levine getting the head job, and
  • the TicketCity Bowl and finishing 13-1.
