Houston Baptist Takes The Field

((HT: MyFoxHouston))

Houston Baptist's football program was 53 years in the making...

And the head coach, Vic Shealy, wanted to play Sam Houston State (yes, them...) for their first-game ever...

They lost 74-0, but that was okay...

"We knew this would be really, really a challenge much larger than you see typically on a college field," Shealy said after the game. "While you'd like to think we were capable of playing better, you cannot put into context just how young we are and how big an opportunity this was for us to grow our program."

The HBU offense only crossed midfield once...

Here's a piece our friends at MyFoxHouston put together before the season opener...

The Huskies were playing their first game in program history and have an abbreviated seven-game schedule. Houston Baptist will join the Southland Conference in 2014.
