HOUSTON (Sports Network) - University of Houston senior quarterback Case Keenum will miss the remainder of the 2010 season after tearing his ACL in a loss to UCLA on Saturday.
Keenum suffered the injury at the four-minute mark of the second quarter, and
it was also announced that backup quarterback Cotton Turner will miss the rest
of the season after fracturing his clavicle in the third quarter.
"I am very disappointed for both these young men," said Houston head coach
Kevin Sumlin. "It's hard to see them hurting right now. They both are a big
part of this team and wanted to be contributors to its success this season. I
think they can still do that with their off-field leadership."
Keenum finished the season with 636 passing yards and five touchdown passes.
As a senior, he finishes his college career with 14,448 yards of total
offense, 13,586 passing yards, 107 touchdown passes, 1,626 pass attempts and
1,118 pass completions. All five of those statistics rank in the top 10 in
Last year, Houston led the nation in scoring with Keenum at the helm,
finishing 10-4. He threw for 5,671 yards and completed 70.3 percent of his
pass attempts (492-of-700).
