Houston Adds Two Non-Conference Series

June 5, 2017

HOUSTON – A west coast trip against the Pac-12 Conference and an in-state series are on tap as Houston Football announced future non-conference football series with Washington State and North Texas on Monday.

The Cougar showdown between the Coogs of Houston and the Cougs of Washington State will open on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019, at TDECU Stadium before a return trip to Pullman, Wash., on Sept. 12, 2020.

The two teams have met three times previously with Washington State owning a 2-1 advantage in the series after claiming the last meeting, a 24-22 win in the 1988 Aloha Bowl in Honolulu. Houston claimed a 21-7 win in the Astrodome in 1966, while Washington State won the first game of the series, 31-18, at Rice Stadium in 1959.

In its other series announced Monday, Houston will stay in the state of Texas and travel up to Denton, Texas, on Sept. 28, 2019 to face North Texas before the Mean Green make a return trip to TDECU Stadium on Sept. 23, 2023.

The two teams have met previously 14 times, splitting the series at seven wins apiece although Houston owns a four-game winning streak in the series, the last meeting coming in 2012 when Houston picked up a 44-21 win.

The addition of Monday’s series leaves Houston with one only non-conference spot to fill in each of the 2019, 2020 and 2023 seasons as Houston continues to follow its non-conference scheduling model of two Power Six opponents in the non-conference schedule of each year.
