Texas schools carry apprehension into kickoff amid pandemic
Then came the expanded protocols and increased costly testing necessary to play upper-division schools during a pandemic. It is for the Huskies, who return senior standouts at all offensive skill positions after a school-record five wins last season. Houston Baptist made the 300-mile bus ride to Denton, Texas, for the season opener Saturday night at North Texas. The Southland Conference would require only once-a-week testing, but the Huskies have to follow the rules of their opponents' conferences. So it's a lot of different emotions, and certainly more running the gamut than in a normal year," North Texas athletic director Wren Baker said.
