UH Pushing to Make Its Big 12 Football Opener a Night Game With Major Concert Power — TCU Matchup to be a City-Wide Event | Paper City
The Horned Frogs will have to get used to being everyone's Super Bowl

The University of Houston has been pushing to make its Big 12 football opener against TCU a night game, allowing an entire weekend — including what could be the first of a new high-profile, major act Big 12 concert series — to be built around the September 16th game. The idea is to make UH’s long awaited first game in the Big 12 a massive event in the city that reaches beyond just football.
