The University of Houston Cougars defeated crosstown rivals Rice Owls for the Bayou Bucket at TDECU Stadium on Saturday night. Defensive superstar Ed Oliver created turnovers and quarterback Kyle Allen and the offense capitalized by turning them into points. Both teams displayed several signs of respect for our town still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
