The Rams will host the Rockets on Tuesday, November 18 at 6 p.m. on ESPNU.

With VCU’s first game against Tennessee on November 14 set for CBS Sports Network, the Black & Gold will start the season with back-to-back national television games. Last season, the Rams were on national TV a school record 25 times.
