The BYU Cougars have scheduled a 2013-14 home-and-home football series with the Houston Cougars, BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe announced today.
BYU will travel to face Houston at Robertson Stadium on October 19, 2013. The BYU Cougars will then host the Houston Cougars at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on September 27, 2014. The 2013 game will be the first ever between the two schools.
“We’re excited to play this series with Houston,” said Holmoe. “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.”
BYU continues to add opponents to its future football schedules. In 2013, BYU hosts Boise State, Georgia Tech, Texas and Utah and travels to Hawaii, Houston, Notre Dame and Utah State.
In 2014, BYU hosts Houston and Southern Miss and plays at Boise State, Georgia Tech, Texas, UCF and Utah. They also play Hawaii with the site to be determined.
The addition of BYU gives the Houston Cougars three non-conference games in both 2013 and 2014. Houston also hosts Louisiana Tech and UTSA in 2013 and then travels to those schools in 2014.
