Hurricane Harvey has forced the Cougars to move inland.
With Hurricane Harvey set to make landfall sometime tonight or tomorrow, everyone in the Gulf Coast area is making arrangements—including college football teams.
According to CBS Sports, Houston football will travel to Austin to use Texas’ facilities in order to practice Saturday and Sunday. The Cougars might even stay there for the better part of next week as they prepare for their season opener on September 2 versus UT-San Antonio.
“We are grateful to the University of Texas and its football program for opening their doors to us,” Cougars coach Major Applewhite said in a statement, per CBS Sports. “We are also thankful to the other programs from across the state of Texas that offered shelter to our program during this time. We are hopeful for the best in Houston but are preparing for every situation. We ask everyone to keep the city of Houston, all affected areas across the Gulf Coast and its residents in their thoughts and prayers.”
Baylor, TCU and SMU also reportedly offered their facilities to Houston.
