Clint Dempsey's second game with the Seattle Sounders will be a return home of sorts, with the USA captain having grown up in Nacogdoches, a small town north of Houston.
Houston comes into the match on the back of a loss to Real Salt Lake, with that result leaving the club in the final playoff spot in the East.
Two Seattle players took part in the USA's win over Bosnia on Wednesday, with Eddie Johnson - who is suspended for the game against Houston - opening the scoring for the USA. Brad Evans also played in the match.
Saturday's match will be Seattle's first at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Prior to the loss to RSL, Houston was on a four-match winning run in MLS play.
