The UH Cougars will be ending some relationships after this season -- they'll be leaving Conference USA for the Big East, and demolition crews will begin working on Robertson Stadium in December 2012.
The school isn't sure yet where the 2013 football team will play while a new stadium is being built -- BBVA Compass Stadium seems a likely choice; TSU will play there -- but the new facility is scheduled to be ready by kickoff 2014.
Game times for 2012 are not set yet, and neither are TV appearances. They do have a Thursday-night game at SMU, and that seems likely to get on some cable channel.
