The Houston Cougars attendance for their college football games have went up 17 percent from last year. In addition, they were ninth nationally in average attendance increase.
This news comes just days after the school announced Tom Herman as their new head coach. But the increase happened under former head coach Tony Levine and the opening of the state-of-the-art TDECU Stadium in 2014.
The team sold 15,022 season tickets this past season.
The Cougars, under an interim coach, have one game left this season. However, this game will not be at home.
On January 2nd, they play in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl. The 7-5 Cougars face off against the Pitt Panthers in Fort Worth, Texas at 12 noon.
The Cougars are going into the Bowl game on a one-game losing streak following a 38-31 loss to the Cincinnati Bearcats.
This would be their first neutral site game all season.
