The Cougar defense gave UH every opportunity Saturday night and, finally, Clayton Tune and the offense scored enough late in the game to put Navy away, 28-20.
Derek Parish, Malik Robinson, Damarion Williams, and Donavan Mutin were defensive leaders while Atlias Bell came through with a sack. Defensive back Marcus Jones returned a punt for a touchdown and scored on offense, becoming the first Cougar since the Tulane game in 2011 to turn that trick (Patrick Edwards).
“He’s a heck of a player,” Dana Holgorsen said after the game. “That punt return stuff, I’ve never seen anything like it.”
