Navy football begins grueling seven-game stretch with road trip to Houston

A Navy football program in turmoil begins American Athletic Conference action this weekend on the road against a familiar opponent that has been tough to beat.

Navy travels to Houston for a Saturday night (7 p.m.) matchup at TDECU Stadium that will be broadcast on ESPNU. The Cougars were picked to finish fourth in the AAC in a preseason poll of media.

Houston, under the direction of third-year head coach Dana Holgorsen, is off to a 2-1 start with the lone loss coming in the season opener against Texas Tech. The Cougars led the Red Raiders 21-7 at halftime, but were outscored 31-0 in the second half.
