The University of Houston played their first game of the season at UA Saturday night and many people traveled to Tucson to see their Cougars. 

Some Houston fans said they were personally affected by Hurricane Harvey and this trip to Tucson served as a distraction from the destruction back home. 

Throughout the week UA donated about 70,000 pounds of supplies in order to be taken back to Houston.

Two UA football equipment trucks left to drive those supplies back to Houston following the game.
