Houston will follow up with its first home game of the season when it hosts Auburn, who finished 11-18 and 4-12 in the Southeastern Conference, at the Fertitta Center on Dec. 5.
It will be the first time the two programs have played each other since 1993.
Houston then travels to Arlington on Dec. 8 to match up against UT-Arlington, which went 21-11 and 14-4 against Sun Belt Conference foes, and the school’s first-year head coach Shereka Wright. Houston leads the all-time series 10-1.
The Cougars wrap up its nonconference schedule when it plays Stephen F. Austin, who went 23-6 overall and 16-4 against Southland Conference opponents, on Dec. 11 at the Fertitta Center.
The two teams have not played each other since 1997.
