As of today, two months remain until the 2014 University of Houston football season kicks off in its brand new stadium. The schedule has been updated since it was first released in March, with Tennessee Tech being replaced by UNLV and with some adjustments to game dates, so the Cougars' fall slate now looks like this:
Fri Aug 29 Texas - San Antonio Houston, TX 8:00 pm (ESPNU)
Sat Sep 06 Grambling State Houston, TX 7:00 pm
Thu Sep 11 at BYU Provo, UT 8:00 pm (ESPN)
Sat Sep 20 Nevada-Las Vegas Houston, TX TBA
Thu Oct 02 Central Florida Houston, TX 6:00 pm (ESPN)
Sat Oct 11 at Memphis Memphis, TN TBA
Fri Oct 17 Temple Houston, TX 8:00 pm (ESPNU)
Sat Nov 01 at USF Tampa, FL TBA
Sat Nov 08 Tulane Houston, TX TBA
Sat Nov 22 Tulsa Houston, TX TBA
Fri Nov 28 at SMU Dallas, TX TBA
Sat Dec 06 at Cincinnati Cincinnati, OH TBA
I'm still not too pleased with it, what with all the weak opponents and Thursday and Friday night games, but UNLV is definitely an upgrade from Tennessee Tech and I'm glad to see that, as of right now, at least four of our first five home games will be night kickoffs (so we can avoid the worst of the heat and enjoy some quality tailgating).
If I'm so inclined, I'll do my customary season preview as we get closer to kickoff. In the meantime, here's what Yardbarker has to say about the Coogs.
