HOUSTON - The Houston Football program closed out its spring practices Friday night with its annual Spring Game. A stingy defense controlled the majority of the game although the Houston offense managed two touchdowns from its quarterbacks, one through the air and one on the ground.
Junior college transfer quarterback Hunter McCoy picked up the night's first score with an 11-yard scramble, reaching inside the right pylon on the south end zone of Carl Lewis Field.
Junior linebacker Elandon Roberts led the Houston defense with three tackles while defensive tackles B.J. Singleton and Melvin Holland each posted two sacks. Junior defensive end Trevon Randle, redshirt-freshman linebacker Caleb Tucker and sophomore defensive tackle Aleksander Andric all added sacks while sophomore defensive back Steven Aikens had the night's lone interception.
Houston returns to action this fall when it opens the Houston Football Stadium against UTSA in late August.
