HOUSTON – Former Houston Texans star player J.J. Watt is still claiming Houston as his own.
The fact was most apparent on Monday night as the University of Houston Cougars clawed their way into the Final Four and Watt was along for the journey, tweeting a photo of himself wearing a Cougars shirt and sending out his reflections during and after the game.

Have to wonder what that 4th quarter looks like if DiDi Richards doesn’t go out with the injury, but man what a game.
Incredible matchup. #ncaaW
