ORLANDO, Fla - The University of Houston softball team takes on UCF in their final road Conference USA series of the year. Houston (29-18, 12-6) and UCF (35-13, 12-6) are both tied for third in the C-USA standings.

SERIES HISTORY
The Cougars hold the edge in the series 12-6 over UFC and swept the Knights at home last year to claim a share of the C-USA regular season title. The Cougars shut out the Knights 2-0, 4-0 and 7-0 for the third regular season championship in program history.

The Cougars claimed the first eight matchups in the series that began in 2006 before UCF took six of the next seven.

OPPONENT NOTES
UCF is fresh off an 8-1 victory over Stetson on Wednesday and swept Memphis the previous weekend.

The Knights rely on pitchers freshman Mackenzie Audas (19-7, 1.09 ERA) and Schmidt (11-3, 1.62 ERA) to lead their squad in the circle as the Knights host Houston on Senior Day.

LAST TIME OUT
Houston posted a pair of wins over Bayou City opponents as they hosted Texas Southern (12-4) and Houston Baptist (5-0) on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Haley Outon homered in both games as she has hit long balls in four of the last five games.

HOUSTON NOTES
The Cougars bumped their team batting average up to .317 after the midweek games, raising their average up from their No. 21 NCAA ranking. Holly Anderson (.380) and Reina Gaber (.348) have boosted their career totals this season to rank No. 5 (Gaber - .318) and No. 6 (Anderson- .314) all time in Houston history. Melissa Gregson who is hitting for the second highest average on the team at .361, is just off their career paces with her .308 sum.

Houston continues their balanced approach to their success this year yielding results while on the base paths and when their opponents reach base as well. Houston has stolen a program record 93 bases this season, and set the single-game high against Nevada with seven steals.

Houston ranks No. 13 (1.82) in steals per game and will see that total go up as they accumulated nine against their Bayou City opponents HBU and Texas Southern.

When the other team is on base, Houston is turning the 15th most double plays per game.

Haley Outon has hit a team-leading 16 home runs this year and that total ranks third in program history, tying Melissa Gregson's sum from last year. Laurie Wagener (19) and Kristen Glowacz (17) hold the top two positions in the UH record books. The 16 home runs is the most hit by a catcher in the history of the program.
