HOUSTON, Texas -- Houston Baptist and Texas Southern are in need of a win after opening their respective seasons with a road loss.
In the first meeting between the two Houston schools on the football field, the Huskies from the Southland Conference and the Tigers from the SWAC have a 7 p.m. kickoff Saturday at Husky Stadium.
"It's a fun game when you have two teams that call Houston their home," HBU coach Vic Shealy said. "We need to have a great crowd to show up and show that we can play better than what we did last week, and it would be a great feeling to leave having done that and to come away with a win. But we got to get better, and so this is a good test for us.
"I didn't know much about them until this year. They are very athletic, which we understood that they would be. I know it will be a real challenge, but it will be a fun game. We need to have a big win and get the momentum back."
