UH schedules home-and-home series against the other Cougars
UH announced it added the Brigham Young Cougars to its non-conference schedule for the 2013, and 2014 seasons.
The Cougars will host BYU on Oct. 19, 2013, at Robertson Stadium. The next season on Sept. 27, 2014, UH will travel to Provo, Utah, for the second game of the series.
“We are very pleased to be able to bring such a high-quality opponent to the University of Houston campus,” Director of Athletics Mack Rhoades said in a release.
“BYU is a tradition-rich football program and will make for an exciting series. We believe in playing a strong non-conference schedule against teams nationally known to our fans.”
The two schools have never squared off on the gridiron. BYU is entering its first season as an independent.
“We’re excited to play this series with Houston,” BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe said. “It allows both schools to have unique travel experiences and play very good competition.
“Our football team has never played in Houston, so I’m excited that BYU fans in that part of the country will have an opportunity to see our team play in person.”
Details regarding television broadcasts and ticket sales will be made available later.
