Seniors on squad get a final chance

Cougar Sports Services

Though the season may be all but over, UH still has something to play for.

Seniors on the Cougar squad will be taking their final snaps during UH's game against the Louisville Cardinals on Saturday.

With the quarterbacking job eventually falling to someone other than senior Jason McKinley, head coach Dana Dimel has planned to use freshman backup Bubba Teague this week -- especially after Teague's high number of snaps against East Carolina.

"(Teague) is going to play, but Jason is going to play a lot more," Dimel said. "It's (McKinley's) last game and his back was sore last week. He's feeling 100 percent, so he's going to play a lot more this week."

McKinley has already thrown for more than 8,550 yards in his UH career.

But other seniors aside from McKinley will be wearing the Scarlet and White for the last time, including offensive lineman Josh Lovelady, safety Emile White, linebacker and All-American candidate Wayne Rogers and wide receiver Kendall Williams. Williams may play despite being plagued by a sore shoulder.

Dimel has urged the team to "play hard for the seniors."

He also stressed the importance of playing well against the Conference USA-leading Cardinals after a 62-20 loss to East Carolina. Dimel was not pleased with the effort put forth by his players during the blowout.

"Coming back from last week and playing hard after not being pleased with our effort last Saturday is the key," Dimel said. "We need to make sure we look back on the year and say we played well at the stadium, because that's something we want to continue to do as we go on into the program."

Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The game will not be televised in Houston, but can be heard on the radio at KBME-AM 790 and on the Internet at
