Houston Football: Uniforms To Honor Hurricane Harvey Victims For Home Opener

The Houston football program will be taking the field at home for the first time this season and they will be wearing a special tribute to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
According to a report from Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle, the Cougars will be representing their cities on both the front and the back of their jerseys.
That’s because the team will have special nameplates on the back above their numbers which reads, “HOUSTON.”
“It’s pretty cool,” team captain Garrett Davis told the paper. “It will keep the motto of playing for the city. It won’t necessarily be a game about us. We’ll be able to go out and fight for the city, fight for the people whose houses were damaged and aren’t able to do the things we are able to do.”
Houston’s home opener takes place on Saturday against Rice.
The Cougars season opener was canceled due to the storm, before they returned to the field in Week 2 to pick up a win over the Arizona Wildcats.
Kickoff between the Cougars and Owls is set for 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN3.
