HOUSTON – Hello from the Xfinity Sports Desk and KPRC Channel 2 Sports.

Here’s what’s happening this week on the sports scene for our teams and programs.


The Texans got their second win on the season with a 27-25 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. Deshaun Watson finished with 281 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Also, 10-year Veteran JJ Watt recorded his 100th career sack. Now the Texans look forward to preparing for the Cleveland Browns, who are dealing with some COVID-19 issues. Quarterback Baker Mayfield was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list after he came in contact with a staff member who tested positive for the virus. Let’s see if this will have any effect on Sunday’s game in Cleveland.


The Aggies dominated the Gamecocks this past weekend with a 48-3 victory. Senior Quarterback Kellen Mond broke Texas A&M’s all-time touchdown record throwing his 68th TD pass of his career. Aggies moved up two spots in the AP polls to #5 in the country. The Aggies will take on Tennessee this Saturday on the road.


The Cougars had a tough task this past weekend facing No. 6 Cincinnati. After a 38-10 loss, the Cougars look to rebound at home this Saturday as they square off with South Florida at 2 p.m.
