Texas Tech and Houston will play four games from 2017 to 2022, beginning with a date in Houston on Sept. 16, 2017. Both games in Houston will be played in the Cougars' new on-campus stadium and not in Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL's Houston Texans.
The Red Raiders will host Houston at Jones AT&T Stadium for both games in Lubbock. The full schedule:
- Sept. 16, 2017 in Houston
- Sept. 15, 2018 in Lubbock
- Sept. 18, 2021 in Houston
- Sept. 10, 2022 in Lubbock
The two schools were rivals in the Southwest Conference, and new Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury served as the Cougars' co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2010 and 2011.
Houston also announced a home and home against Kansas for 2019 and 2020, giving the program a Big 12 opponent on the schedule in six consecutive seasons.
"This is another great series for Kansas football," Kansas coach Charlie Weis said in a release. "The state of Texas is an extremely important area for our program in terms of recruiting. In addition, we have a large alumni base in Houston area so being able to play Houston is ideal for both the team and our fans."
Kansas is 3-0 all-time vs. Houston, and beat the Cougars 42-13 in the 2005 Fort Worth Bowl, the last meeting between the two teams.
