HOUSTON, TX (WFLA) -

John O'Korn was 22 of 27 for 263 yards and three touchdowns and Houston forced a late fumble to beat South Florida 35-23 on Thursday night.
    
Deontay Greenberry caught four passes for 106 yards and a touchdown, and Kenneth Farrow had rushing and receiving touchdowns for Houston (7-1, 4-0 Athletic Conference). The Cougars are only FBS team to score in every quarter this season.

Following a muffed punt by Houston, South Florida recovered at the Houston 27 with 6 minutes remaining.
