BB's Cafe introduces "The Applewhite" supporting UH football

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- University of Houston is back in class, and if you want to support Cougar football, head over to BB's Cafe, and order up "The Applewhite."

The dish is named for head coach Major Applewhite, and it's a plateful of catfish, crawfish, shrimp etoufee, and dirty rice.

The idea came from Brooks Bassler, owner of BB's, a University of Houston alumnus and athlete. Coach Applewhite had the opportunity to taste test and gave it his seal of approval.

Two dollars from every dish sold will be donated to the 46ers organization which supports UH football. The dish will be sold at all seven restaurant locations.

UH takes on the Rice Owls on Saturday at the Bayou Bucket at TDECU Stadium.
