HOUSTON - The location for The Pulse with Tom Penders radio show has been changed, officials with the University of Houston Athletics Department announced Thursday morning.
The change was made to avoid conflicts at the restaurant with the BCS National Championship Game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Texas.
Originally scheduled to be held at Bubba's Sports Bar & Grill, Penders' first show of the 2010 season instead will be broadcast from the SportsTalk 790 AM studios. Unfortunately, fans will not be able to attend Thursday's radio show.
However, Cougar Basketball fans will have plenty of chances in the weeks ahead to join Penders and the "Voice of the Cougars" Tom Franklin for the remaining broadcasts.
The Pulse with Tom Penders airs live from 7 to 8 p.m., on Thursdays in 2010 from various restaurants throughout Houston. The show can be heard live on SportsTalk 790 AM or on the Internet at UHCougars.com and will be hosted by Franklin.
Fans are invited to join Penders and Franklin at the selected restaurant each week as the duo discusses recent Cougar Basketball action and upcoming games, college basketball, the world of sports and much more.
In addition, fans can click the Ask Coach Penders button on the main page at UHCougars.com and submit a question for the sixth-year Houston head coach.
The Cougars return to action at 6 p.m., Saturday, when they play host to Conference USA rival Tulsa inside Hofheinz Pavilion. Fans can follow the game live on KTRH 740 AM with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action.
Fans also can follow live stats on the Internet by clicking the GameTracker link at UHCougars.com.
Fans can purchase basketball tickets on-line at UHCougars.com by clicking the Tickets link, by calling 713-GO-COOGS (462-6647) or by visiting the Athletics Ticket Office on the first floor of the Athletics/Alumni Center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
