The Houston Cougars are the athletic teams representing the University of Houston. Informally, the Houston Cougars have also been referred to as the Coogs, UH, or simply Houston. Houston’s nickname was suggested by early physical education instructor of the university and former head football coach, John R. Bender after one of his former teams, Washington State later adopted the mascot and nickname. The teams compete in the NCAA’s Division I and the Football Bowl Subdivision as members of the American Athletic Conference. The official school colors of the University of Houston are scarlet red and albino white, and the mascot is a cougar named Shasta. Houston’s traditional rival has been Rice with whom the Cougars shared a conference for thirty-three non-consecutive years.
