Houston's rolled several inferior road opponents in the C-USA to almost empty audiences this month, but Saturday's home game against in-state, in-conference rival SMU is an official sellout, with the secondary market for tickets thriving. The Houston Chronicle profiled the rising rate for tickets earlier this week, when head coach Kevin Sumlin officially announced a rare sellout at Robertson Stadium:
Amidst cheers and applause, Sumlin addressed the crowd and talked about the goings on of his program, including the arrival of the traveling pregame show, ESPN’s College GameDay. When it came to the SMU game, which is at 2:30 p.m. at Robertson Stadium, Sumlin said "If you have tickets, congratulations, because there are no more."
While UH has played to many capacity or near-capacity crowds at Robertson Stadium in recent years, it isn’t very often that a statement of that type can be made around Cullen Boulevard with five days to go before game day.
Date, Time: Saturday, November 19, 2:30pm CT
Location: Robertson Stadium, Houston, Texas
Radio: 790 AM
