    HOUSTON, Texas -- When the University of Houston plays its first home game of the season against Army Saturday night, the Cougars will have a new look in their defensive unit.

    Redshirt junior Lee Ingersoll will return to the starting lineup at right defensive end after missing the LSU game. The bite from the spider is one of the most toxic in the spider species and it required the 6-foot-3, 255-pound Ingersoll to be hospitalized for a full week. Ingersoll replaces freshman David Midyett, who was scheduled to make the first start of his collegiate career. Midyett will miss the game after suffering an ankle sprain in practice this week.

    Ingersoll started at right end in Houston's season opener at Rice and recorded three tackles, recovered two fumbles and knocked down a pass versus the Owls. He missed the LSU game after being bitten by a brown recluse spider.

    In the secondary, senior David Williams also will make his first start of the season as he replaces Heard Robinson at strong safety. Williams has played as Houston's nickel back much of the season and has made six tackles. He was a starting free safety for the Cougars in 1998 and played in all 11 games last year.

    Robinson also will miss the game after he injured his ankle in practice. He had started the first two games this season and recorded seven tackles and one interception against LSU.

    In addition, senior reserve defensive back Fred Conley also will not see action against Army due to a quadriceps contusion. Conley, who plays primarily on special teams, made three tackles in Houston's first two games.
