HOUSTON, Texas – Here are all the nitty-gritty details of how you can watch or listen to No. 14 BYU take on the Houston Cougars on Friday, October 16th.

Both teams enter the game with undefeated records. BYU is one of the hottest teams in the country with a 4-0 record. Houston, due to numerous postponements and cancelations in the month of September has only played one game. They won that game last week against Tulane by a score of 49-31.

This is the third-ever meeting between the two programs. The last time these teams met was in 2014 when BYU was undefeated and had Taysom Hill at quarterback. BYU leads the series 2-0.

Initially, this game was supposed to be played in Provo but due to COVID-19 recommendations from Houston’s medical staff, they asked to have the game in Texas this year. Houston will make a return visit to Provo in 2023.
