SAN ANTONIO – Officials at the University of Texas at San Antonio announced Wednesday that a decision has been made not to reschedule its football game against the University of Houston this year.

Both universities agreed to work together to “reschedule the game for a date in a future year.”

The game was postponed after Hurricane Harvey caused catastrophic flooding across Houston last month.

The teams are scheduled to face off against each other in 2022.

Below is the statement released by UTSA:

Officials from The University of Texas at San Antonio and the University of Houston agreed on Wednesday that the previously postponed game against Houston will not be made up this season.

Following recovery from Hurricane Harvey, administrators from both universities will work together to reschedule the game for a date in a future year. This game is part of a four-game series that calls for two home contests for each program. UTSA and Houston will face off again on Sept. 3, 2022, at TDECU Stadium in Houston, on Sept. 2, 2023, at the Alamodome and on Aug. 31, 2024, back in Houston.

All tickets will be refunded and ticket holders do not need to do anything to receive a refund. Detailed information on this process will be disseminated by the UTSA Ticket Office to all ticket holders.

“We appreciate the support and understanding of our fans, and their concern for those who have been impacted by Harvey,” Associate Vice President/Director of Athletics Lynn Hickey said. “We encourage everyone to consider using their ticket refund to make a donation to hurricane relief and recovery efforts. The devastation in South Central and Southeast Texas is beyond imagination, and as the Roadrunner Family we can make a real difference at this critical time.”

UTSA will officially open its seventh season and second under head coach Frank Wilson on Saturday, Sept. 9, against Baylor. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at McLane Stadium in Waco, Texas, and the game will be televised on Fox Sports Networks (Fox Sports Southwest in the state of Texas).
