While the University of Houston is expected to announce the Cougars will play most, if not all of their home games at Reliant Stadium in 2013, that is not the case yet.
"As you can imagine, there are several factors that dictate the location of our 2013 home games, most notably the 2013 NFL schedule," said Mack Rhoades, UH athletics director.
"We will announce locations of all of our home games following the release of the NFL schedule.
Rhoades offered a message for UH fans.
"We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause our fans and we look forward to returning to campus in 2014 with the opening of our new state-of-the-art, 40,000 seat stadium.
