In separate statements, UH and UTSA said they will explore making up the game at a later date. UH has offered to play on Dec. 2 - if neither team advances to its respective conference championship game - but UTSA has yet to agree, a person familiar with the talks said.
In addition, UH announced that none of its athletic programs will travel this weekend, among them volleyball, soccer and cross country. The university has cancelled classes until Sept. 5.
The UH football program is working on a plan to set up two drop-off points in the Austin area for people to donate items. The school has commitments from “four to six other schools throughout the state” that are playing home games this weekend - a group believed to include Texas Tech, Baylor, SMU and TCU - to make available their 18-wheel travel trucks. UH players will assist loading up the trucks before returning to Houston.
