Final Game at the Current H.A. Chapman Stadium Has Big Implications in C-USA West Title Chase
Nov. 5, 2007
Tulsa, Oklahoma - There's a lot in store for fans at the upcoming Tulsa-Houston Football game this coming weekend. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:05 pm on Saturday, November 10. The game pits first-place Houston, 5-1 in league action, and second-place Tulsa (6-3, 4-2) in a Conference USA West Division showdown.
After this week's match-up, both teams have just one C-USA contest remaining as Houston hosts Marshall on Nov. 17, and Tulsa visits Rice on Nov. 24. A Houston win would wrap up the West Division title for the Cougars, while a Tulsa victory would put off seeing which team would represent the C-USA West Division at the C-USA Championship game on Dec. 1 until the final week of the season.
The Tulsa-Houston game is the final regular season home game at H.A. Chapman Stadium in its current state. Renovation of the stadium will begin following the home campaign and will be complete for the 2008 season. There will be a special ceremonial ground-breaking at halftime of the Tulsa-Houston contest.
Fans can receive free admission to the game by bringing a new, unwrapped toy for the annual U.S. Marines Toys for Tots campaign. Toys will be collected at the stadium gates.
TU will be honoring our nation's military on Veteran's Day Weekend. All former and current military personnel can purchase up to four General Admission tickers for $5.00 each by showing a military ID.
The contest is also the final home game for 15 seniors, including record-setting quarterback Paul Smith and four-year starting linebacker Nelson Coleman. Other seniors include: Walter Boyd (OT), Chris Chamberlain (LB), Cameron Clemons (WR), Steve Craver (DB), Ted Curtis (TE), Alex Detwiler (DE), Anthony Germany (DB), Kyle Grooms (WR), Brandon Jones (NG), Alain Karatepeyan (LB), Cody Madison (FB), Terrance Thomas (DB) and Wade Whitlow (OL).
