    USTFCCCA Rankings | Season Results

    HOUSTON – The University of Houston men’s track and field team has moved up to no. 23 in the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) 2014 indoor ranking after two weeks. 

    The Cougars jumped up one spot from the previous week’s ranking, reaching the highest ranking for the program since 2008. Prior to this season, Houston’s highest ranking was when the team reached no. 28 during week four in 2011. 

    “That ranking is really based on the strength of Cameron (Burrell) and LeShon (Collins)’s performances as well as some marks that were established last year,” head coach Leroy Burrell said. “When you look at it like that, given the fact that we haven’t really got after it in the distance events and others who can contribute, it’s really exciting.” 

    Houston continues its indoor season with the Texas A&M Aggie Invitational this weekend in College Station. The Cougars will face tough competition from top 30-ranked teams Texas A&M (no. 4), Arizona State (no. 12), Baylor (no. 24), LSU (no. 28), UCLA (no. 26) and UTEP (no. 13).
