Following each game CougarsDen.com will recognize the standout performers by handing out our game balls. Here are the game balls from Houston's 22-13 road win over Temple Saturday afternoon.
<Deontay Greenberry: The standout sophomore took a huge step forward on Saturday in becoming the go-to guy for not only the team but for young quarterback John O'Korn. Greenberry had 14 catches for 165 yards. He was money down the stretch in the second half.
Ryan Jackson: The sophomore running back was off to a good start to the day but became even more important to the Cougars offense after fellow backfield mate Kenneth Farrow left the game with a lower leg injury in the first half. Jackson responded and ended up with 22 carries for 109 yards and the Cougars lone touchdown of the game to help seal the win late.
Richie Leone: We will not forget the talented senior twice. Leone again handled all of the kicking duties for the Cougars and responded by hitting five of 6 field goals and the lone extra point. He was personally responsible for 16 of Houston's 22 points in the win and had two punts for a 40 yard average and was solid on kick-offs as well with three touchbacks.
Derrick Mathews: The standout junior middle linebacker again was the go to guy on the defensive side of the ball. Mathews had 13 tackles and a pass break-up in the Cougars win on Saturday.
Adrian McDonald: The sophomore safety had a solid day on the defensive side of the ball with seven tackles which would have been a admirable performance. Then McDonald picked off Temple late in the game to give Houston the ball back and seal the win. On top of that he nearly returned the interception for a touchdown.
