Reminders of coronavirus loomed at TDECU Stadium on game day

Although there was a humid breeze in the air, the student section of TDECU Stadium was heating up on Thursday evening as people gathered and were ready to finally cheer on their Cougars to kick off the new season.

Since the beginning of the semester, students have been cautiously waiting for the return of football after five potential opening games got canceled or postponed due to coronavirus concerns with the opposing teams.

UH fans were finally able to attend a game in 2020 this past Thursday, but the shadow of COVID-19 was evident throughout the stadium.

“I was a little worried about coming at first and still am, but they are doing a pretty good job of social distancing and people are keeping their masks on,” said media production freshman Oscar Maese.
