While there isn’t many games happening this week, the games that are happening are equally as exciting. Whether you watch baseball, football, basketball, or even rugby, there’s a game for you.

From the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes vs the Houston Cougars to Old Glory DC vs Houston SaberCats, here are the top sporting events happening in Houston this week.

MLB: Houston Astros vs Washington Nationals @ Minute Maid Park

Sunday, February 23 | 1:05PM

This Sunday afternoon, grab tickets to watch the Houston Astros play against the Washington Nationals at Minute Maid Park. Lance McMullers Jr will be returning after recovering from an injury that kept him from playing in the 2019 season. McMullers has returned to his team completely healthy after having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. From having one of their star players return, a new manager, and a new general manager, the Astros have a lot of changes happening that could work against them. Have they recovered from the sign-stealing scandal they underwent last year that cost their old managers their jobs? More than 70 million people watch MLB every year. Are you one of them? Grab tickets today for this game!

Tulsa Golden Hurricane at Houston Cougars Football @ Fertitta Center

Wednesday, February 19 | 8PM

The Houston Cougars recently played against the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes in November last year, winning with a score of 24-14. Damarion Williams gave Houston the lead to help them win this game and we believe he’ll be able to nail it again this Wednesday night at the Fertitta Center. Grab tickets to this game on SeatGeek for as low as $6.

Houston Baptist Huskies vs Abilene Christian Wildcats @ Sharp Gym

Wednesday, February 19 | 7PM

Last Wednesday, the Houston Baptist Huskies lost against the Abilene Christian Wildcats with a score of 67-81. It’s well known that the Abilene Wildcats have the strongest defense in the Southland conference, so they used this to their advantage by successfully slowing down the Huskies’ offense. This was surprising to a lot of Huskies’ fans, considering they have had a pretty great season streak of high scores, averaging 81 points per game. It doesn’t help that the Huskies have one of the worse defenses in the entire nation, giving up around 97 points per game. The Wildcats took advantage of this, and it will be quite a game to watch this Wednesday night at Sharp Gym. Grab tickets on SeatGeek for as low as $18.

Houston Cougars vs Cincinatti Bearcats @ Fertitta Center

Tuesday, February 18 | 7PM

This Tuesday night watch the Houston Cougars play against the Cincinatti Bearcats at the Fertitta Center. The Houston Cougars will be entering this game with an overall record of 9-8 and a 3-1 mark in American Athletic Conference play. The Houston Cougars recently played against UCF with a score of 49-67. Their team high 13-point effort was not good enough to beat the UCF, but will it be enough to win against the Cincinatti Bearcats? Grab tickets to this game and find out!

Old Glory DC at Houston SaberCats @ Aveva Stadium

Saturday, February 22 | 7PM

We are really excited that the 2020 rugby season has finally started, and the games are something one shouldn’t miss. This Saturday night you can grab tickets to watch the Old Glory DC play against the Houston SaberCats at the Aveva Stadium. Houston SaberCats are actually one of the founding members of Major League Rugby, and it shows in their games. They’re a team to watch out for, even though they’re at the bottom of the league table at the moment. Grab tickets on SeatGeek for this game starting from $60.
