Houston, TX-  The 2013 campaign for the Southern Jaguars did not get off to a good start.  Southern made the trip to Houston for the season opener and found a Cougar team that was ready to play. The final score, 62-13.

Southern didn't look bad early, trailing just 13-6 after a Dray Joseph to Samuel Altman touchdown strike in the second quarter.  But, the Jaguar defense was not at its best. The unit had a tough time stopping Houston running back Ryan Jackson.  The sophmore rushed for 120 yards and 2 touchdowns. 

In all, the Jaguar defense gave up 627 yards to the Cougars. Turnovers also hurt the Jags, they gave the ball up 4 times. Southern returns to action next Saturday when they travel to Northwestern State.
