HOUSTON - The Houston Cougars don't open up their season for another three weeks, but first year head coach Major Applewhite admits he'd be lying if he said the UTSA Roadrunners weren't on his mind.

"I've thought about them since the moment I got the job," Applewhite said. "As a coach you have to be very very careful when you have 18 practices left, to not get too focused on one opponent. That's not what we want to do. We want to keep these guys fresh, keep the stimulus fresh."
