HOUSTON - The University of Houston soccer team will travel to Birmingham, Ala. for a match-up against UAB at 7 p.m. on Friday, followed by a trip to Tennessee to take on Memphis at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The Cougars are 4-6-3 on the season and 0-2-3 in Conference USA play.

"This is the biggest weekend of the conference for us to date," head coach Chris Pfau said. "We need at least one win on the road to keep alive for a Conference USA Championships spot."

Houston is coming off a 1-1 tie against Marshall on Sunday. Junior midfielder Kylie Cook scored the Cougars lone goal off a penalty kick in the 75th minute. This match marked the first draw of the season for the Thundering Herd and the third for the Cougars.

Houston fell to regionally-ranked East Carolina, 3-0, on Friday. It was the first loss at home for the Cougars this season.

"This past weekend showed us that when we wait for things to happen, we get ourselves in bad situations," Pfau said. "If we can learn to come out from the start, be the aggressor and dictate the game, we will be fine."

UAB
The Blazers are on a five game losing streak after being shutout by Colorado College, 1-0, on Sunday. The last time UAB won a match was on Sept. 21 when they got a 1-0 win over Southern Miss.

Sophomore midfielder Johanna Liney leads the team with five goals.

Friday marks the seventh time these two teams have met in Birmingham. In the last meeting there in 2010, UAB came away with a 2-0 victory.

Memphis
The Tigers are currently ranked No. 6 in the NSCCA/Continental Tire Central Region Poll. They are one of five C-USA teams ranked in the Poll.

Memphis was on a seven-game winning streak until UTEP defeated them 4-1 on Sunday. Junior forward Christabel Oduro leads the team with 10 goals, 7 assists and 27 points.

The overall record between these two teams in Memphis is 2-2-1. The lone draw happened the last time the Cougars met the Tigers in Memphis in 2010.

UP NEXT
The Cougars will return to Robertson Stadium for their final three home games of the 2012 slate. Houston will take on Colorado College at 7 p.m. on Oct. 19, followed by UTEP at 1 p.m. on Oct. 21. It will close out the home schedule against cross-town rival Rice at 7 p.m. on Oct. 26, before heading back to Hattiesburg, Miss. to match-up against Southern Miss at 1 p.m. on Oct. 28.
