FBS Stadium Facts: Houston and Tulsa claim to be the first college football teams to play in an indoor stadium (the Astrodome on September 11, 1965). But actually, Utah and West Virginia met December 19, 1964, in the Liberty Bowl in the Atlantic City Convention Hall. Technically, the Astrodome was the first indoor stadium built specially for football and baseball. The first major-college football game ever played on artificial turf was between Houston and Washington State on September 23, 1966.

UH should start now on plans to honor the 1968 team. 50 year celebration of 100 points would be fun.

Good idea. Speaking of which, anyone hear anything about the school promoting the 40th anniversary of the first SWC team this year?

It’d be nice to see these teams celebrated as well:

20 years since 1996 CUSA Co-Champs
10 years since 2006 CUSA Champs

Wonder what the odds on CAB showing up to the second would be?

Probably about the same as Kim Helton showing up for the 96 one.
