The season opener in Houston will now be held Friday, Aug. 29. The home opener against Arizona recently was moved to Thursday, Sept. 4, and the home game against Southern Mississippi also has moved to a Thursday and will be held Nov. 13 instead of Nov. 15.

The 35-year-old fountain in Sombrilla Plaza is flowing once again following extensive renovations.
The fountain was turned on Jan. 10, and a re-dedication ceremony was held March 4 at the Main Campus.
The fountain is now fully sustainable and uses only reclaimed water from the air conditioning systems in the neighboring buildings. Students proposed the idea and now the fountain will not strain the water supply.
