June 4, 2014
HOUSTON -Kickoff for Houston-BYU in Provo, Utah, an ESPN nationally-televised game on Sept. 11, has been set for 8 p.m. CT, The American Athletic Conference and ESPN announced Wednesday.
The two teams will meet for just the second time as BYU claimed a tightly-contested 47-46 win over UH in a 2013 meeting at Reliant Stadium. The nationally-televised ESPNews game featured a back-and-forth affair with BYU scoring in the game's final two minutes to escape Houston with a victory.
Two of the nation's most experienced teams, UH welcomes back 28 student-athletes with starting experience while BYU welcomes back 34 players who have started in the past.
The first road game of the 2014 season will mark Houston's second-ever trip to the state of Utah. The Cougars defeated Utah, 34-16, in Salt Lake City on Sept. 24, 1977.
Houston opens the 2014 season at 8 p.m., Friday, Aug. 29, when it hosts UTSA in the first ever game in the Houston Football Stadium.
