Houston wanted to score points and get rid of the bad taste that last season caused them when they faced Texas Tech in Week 1. Cougar fans also wanted to see the team score more than 30 points. The game was ugly, and Houston’s game plan didn’t work.

In a tale of two halves, the Texas Tech Red Raiders earned their victory against the Houston Cougars on Saturday evening at NRG Stadium in a 38-21 victory for the eighth installment of the Good Sam Texas Kickoff.
