On the eve of Houston’s highly anticipated showdown with Texas Tech, the Cougars may be getting back one of their top weapons. On Wednesday, Houston head coach Major Applewhite said on his radio show that he expects wide receiver D’Eriq King to be back to make his season debut on Saturday.
Major says wide receiver D'Eriq King is expected to play Saturday against Texas Tech. Would be big for Cougars

King has not played in 2017 after recovering from a knee injury during the offseason. The former Manvel star caught 20 passes in 10 games for 228 yards and a touchdown as a true freshman. Having him back in the fold would be a welcome addition for quarterback Kyle Allen and the rest of the Cougars offense in a game that many anticipate will be a shootout.
The Cougars take on Texas Tech on Saturday at 11 a.m. Central time at TDECU Stadium.
