Your thoughts on the upcoming Rice UTSA game in SA?

Thanks.
Hard to say. We've been all over the map so far this season. I think it's safe to say we'll have a lot better performance against the owls this year. I think the disadvantage in size we had last year has just about disappeared. Our run defense is much improved. With the homefield and some key players healthy, I think we have a real shot at the W.

With the way Rice has been playing, I think you do too. We'll see. Just stick around for the last half of the 4th quarter...our last 2 games haven been, well, it's been ridiculous at the end, and not in a good way (yet somehow we still won.)
You guys gashed us running up the middle last year. Rice earned a lot of respect from me that day. It was our first loss (5-1) and first game against an opponent we just couldn't handle. To add insult to injury, our QB Soza was out for half the game, and when he was in, receivers were dropping TD passes.

This year, I can still see Rice winning, but the "how" of it will be different. It won't come so easily because our line is much improved.

I don't necessarily see a close 1-pt game, but give me 27-20 Rice or 27-20 UTSA.
I was pretty d*mn close on my prediction. 27-21 Rice. Good game.
