HOUSTON -Count on H-Town to sell out thousands of tickets and packed an entire NRG Stadium as the University of Houston faced off against Oklahoma on Saturday.

The Cougars defeated the Sooners 33-23.

“We prepared to win. We expected to win and we trained to win. It wasn’t about making a statement, it was just about going 1 and 0 in the first week of the season and starting the 2016 season off on the right foot,” said Cougars head coach, Tom Herman.

The Coogs will face off against Lamar Cardinals at TDECU stadium next Saturday.
