HOUSTON – The University of Houston and The University of Arizona have signed an agreement to begin a two-game football series in 2017 the two schools jointly announced Tuesday. Houston will travel to Tucson, Ariz., in 2017 before Arizona makes its first trip to Houston in 2018.
“We are excited to announce our agreement with Arizona. Our department is committed to scheduling quality non-conference opponents and this type of matchup is one that rewards both our team and our fans,” said Houston Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Mack Rhoades. “Not only are these non-conference games exciting for our fans, but they are exciting for college football. Our plan is to continue to schedule home-and-home series with a number of high-profile teams in the future.”
The two institutions have met just twice before with each team capturing a win in Tucson. Houston won the first meeting, 34-17, in 1969, before Arizona captured the last matchup, 37-3, in 1986.
