Watch: J.J. Worton and Storm Johnson preview UCF's game vs. Houston
In 2009, Houston came to Orlando ranked No. 12/13 in the country.
The Cougars left with a 37-32 loss.
That Houston team was quarterbacked by current Houston Texans quarterback Case Keenum, and Cougars head coach Tony Levine was an assistant on that staff.
On Monday, Levine said there is no sense of revenge this week as the Cougars come to Bright House Networks Stadium trying to knock off No. 21 UCF.
“This is a completely different team,” Levine said on the American Athletic Conference’s weekly teleconference. “Our two quarterbacks were still wearing pull ups when they went to bed in ‘09. Nobody in our program student-athlete-wise was here at that point. It’s a completely different team here. On their end certainly Coach O’Leary is still there, and they’ve had a little bit of staff turnover, not much. But he’s really, really done a great job establishing that program. They definitely have an identity, they recruit outstanding. It’s completely new. We haven’t played them … since 2010 when they came here and David Piland was a true freshman. They beat us there, I think it was a close game, but they beat us. …[Defensive end Bruce] Miller had an interception for a touchdown. It’ll be two outstanding football programs competing Saturday night. This is a coaching staff that I have a lot of respect for and certainly a program I do, as well.”
