Football Daily Practice Report

Houston - The University of Houston football team continued preparations for this weekend's Conference USA game at UAB with a fast-paced workout Wednesday afternoon on the UH practice fields.

The Cougars practiced two-and-one-half hours under clear skies and mild temperatures after light showers passed through the Houston area earlier in the day.

Houston will play against some familiar faces when the Cougars travel to UAB for the first time since the 2004 season. Former UH offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Neil Callaway is in his first season as UAB's head coach, while former UH head coach Kim Helton (1993-98) serves as Callaway's offensive coordinator and his son and former UH quarterback, Tyson, is the quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator for the Blazers.

After playing its last two Conference USA games at home, Houston returns to the road for two straight weeks and will play three of its next four games on the road.

"If you want to win a conference championship, you have to go out and win on the road," Houston head coach Art Briles said. "We have to play better, smarter and more determined than we have played this season."

The Blazers have jumped out to early leads against Florida State (17-3) and Mississippi State (13-9) before losing both games. UAB also led Tulane 23-14 last week before winning 26-21.

"They have had a trend of jumping to an early lead, and we have been the reverse," Briles said. "We have to go out there and play smart, error free and play with a determined attitude."

The game kicks off at 6 p.m., Saturday at Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., and Cougar fans can hear the game live on 740 AM KTRH with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action, Ted Pardee providing color analysis and Chuck Brown reporting from the sideline. The pre-game show is scheduled to begin one hour before kickoff.
