HOUSTON -- Charles Sims set a career high with 210 yards rushing and scored two touchdowns, leading Houston to a 44-21 victory over North Texas on Saturday night.
Sims opened the scoring with a 5-yard run to cap the first drive of the game, then took a screen pass from David Piland 27 yards for another touchdown just before halftime. That put the Cougars (2-3) ahead 31-14.
Sims' previous career high was 207 yards rushing in last season's 73-17 victory over Tulane.
Piland, who was 31 of 41 for 321 yards, also connected with Dewayne Peace on a 16-yard score and added a rushing touchdown, as did Kenneth Farrow. Matt Hogan made all three of his field-goal attempts, including a 50-yarder, as Houston improved to 7-7 against the Mean Green (2-4).
