If the preseason is any indication, University of Houston Football fans can't wait for the start of the 2012 season.
The Tony Levine Golf Classic recently sold out in record time with fans eager to meet and talk with the Houston Football head coach, who will be entering his first full season at the helm of the Cougars.
The tournament will raise Cougar Pride scholarship funding for Houston student-athletes.
"Following a record-setting 2011 season, Cougar fans are looking forward to the start of the 2012 campaign with Coach Levine, his staff and our student-athletes," Associate Athletics Director for Development Jeramiah Dickey said. "It's exciting to see this kind of spirit and excitement around our program, and I know everyone is going to have a fun time on the golf course Monday. Once again, I would like to thank Ken Baxter for all his hard work on this event."
The event will be played Monday afternoon at Sweetwater Country Club. Through their entry fees, participants will receive a round of golf, the opportunity to meet Levine and other members of the Houston coaching staff as well as lunch, a tournament gift package and a post-tournament awards dinner.

ABOUT THE COUGARS
A year ago, the Cougars posted a 13-1 mark to set a school single-season record in wins and capped the campaign with a dominating 30-14 win against No. 22 Penn State during the TicketCity Bowl.
Running back Charles Sims led the Cougars in 2011 with 821 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. The electrifying junior also was a receiving threat out of the backfield, hauling in 51 catches for 575 yards and four scores to rank fourth on the team.
Sophomore linebacker Derrick Mathews finished second among the Cougars with 106 tackles during his first collegiate season, while senior linebacker Phillip Steward led the team with six interceptions and added 77 tackles.
After sitting out as a redshirt a year ago, sophomore quarterback David Piland will take the reins from NCAA record-setting signal-caller Case Keenum. Starting most of the 2010 season, Piland threw for 2,641 yards and 14 touchdowns on 201-of-345 passing during his true freshman season.
