    HOUSTON - The University of Houston swimming and diving team will be back in action this weekend after a three-week break from competition.

    The Cougars start the weekend with a dual against Michigan State at 2 p.m. on Oct. 31 in Lansing, Mich., and will then swim against Oakland University at noon on Nov. 1 in Rochester, Mich.

    This will be the first ever meeting between Houston and Michigan State. The Cougars are 0-1 against Oakland, after the Golden Grizzlies defeated the Cougars 73-22 in 2000.

    Live results for the dual against Oakland can be found at http://www.ougrizzlies.com/.

    Houston is 2-0 this season in dual meets after defeating Southwestern and North Texas on Oct. 10 and 11, respectively.

    UH defeated Southwestern, 132-88, behind 14 wins at the dual. The following day, Houston defeated North Texas, 174-126, at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center Natatorium. At the meet, junior Jessica Shamburger won the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 57.57, for the 10th fastest time in school history. Junior Anastasia Poszdniakova automatically qualified for the NCAA Zone Diving meet with her 307.43 points to win the 1-meter competition.
