“This game is huge for us,” UH right guard Justin Murphy said. “We came in with the goal to win the AAC, and that starts with Tulane. There is no bigger game on our schedule. We take this one week at a time.”
History favors UH, which is 5-1 in AAC openers since the league began play in 2013. UH is 6-0 in conference road openers during that span.
