SFA Lumberjacks and Sam Houston Bearkats headed to Houston

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The annual "Battle of the Pineywoods" is headed down Highway 59 south to Houston.

Starting next season, Stephen F. Austin State University, Sam Houston and the Houston Texans have agreed on a deal that would allow the annual grudge match between the Lumberjacks and the Bearkats to be played at Reliant Stadium.  For now, it's a gentlemen's agreement.  Nothing has been signed, yet.  You can expect more details on Tuesday, October 20.

In the meantime, the two teams will go head to head next week at Homer Bryce Stadium in Nacogdoches at 6 pm.
