Houston (6-6 overall) has had an up-and-down start to its 2012 season.
Since sweeping Delaware to open the season, the Cougars have lost midweek games against Texas A&M Corpus Christi, No. 5 Rice and Louisiana-Lafayette.
They have also dropped two of three to a good Texas State team and took two of three in the Houston College Classic, topping Tennessee 7-4 and Arkansas 4-1, before losing to Texas Tech 10-4 last Sunday. (March 9, 2012, Page 6A)
