Coogs’ defense dominates in Vanderbilt shutout

It wasn’t the prettiest win this season for the UH Cougars football team, but it was one dominated by the defense.

The Coogs beat the Vanderbilt Commodores 34-0, for their first shutout of the season. A season-high four turnovers, which included a 55-yard pick-six by William Jackson III, ignited the Coogs to this statement win.

Senior safety Adrian McDonald set an all-time career record with his 17th interption in the third quarter of Saturday night’s contest. McDonald’s pick was one of three interceptions for the defense, to go along with fumble recovery that kept Vandy from getting close to the endzone.

The defense wasn’t the only one who kept Vandy on their toes.

The Coogs offense showed their season-long dominance on the ground with rushing touchdowns from quarterback Greg Ward, Jr and running back Kenneth Farrow. Ward also connected with Demarcus Ayers for an 11-yard touchdown pass.

Ward now has 16 rushing touchdowns for the season. With every touchdown Ward runs in, he adds to his the single-season record, for UH QBs. in his second full season as the starter.

The Cougars are now 8-0 and with homecoming week right around the corner. They are set to face AAC opponent Cincinnati.
