1st down: Scrum run up the middle gains 5.
2nd down: Buttonhook pass right ... complete, tackled immediately. Just short of 1st down.
3rd down: Locksley quick sneak for 1st down.

1st down at the UTEP 37: Back to pass. Lots of time. Overthrow deep pass.

2nd down: Locksley rushed ... nearly sacked ... but tosses to receiver ... fown to Rice 34! Arrrgh.

Locksley run ... gains a few ... but hurt his left wrist.!

1:29 left in the half.

RE: Rice @UTEP Game Thread
Another QB keeper loss.

"Miners are going backwards ... and once again I don't think they're playing to Gavin's strength. Some pretty conservative play calling there."

UTEP lets clock run down to 3 seconds for 45-yard FG attempt with wind at his back.

Rice calls timeout to freeze the kicker. LOL!!

Doesn't work. Kick is down the middle.

14-16 ... UTEP takes the lead at halftime. Grrr.

Rice offering absolutely no resistance.
Better see an Owl adjustment here .. or it’s going to be a long, disappointing trip back to Houston tonight.

Losing to UTEP would be a firing offense.

It wasn't one last year.


No team has lost back-to-back against the Miners since...

At the half it’s 14 Rice to 16 for the UTepids

RE: Rice @UTEP Game Thread
If it makes sense to call a timeout to "ice" the kicker, why not do it three times?

True, but not necessarily a TD.

Let’s get maybe three FG so we can win to keep both the winning streak and the TD-less 2H streak going!!!!

And.... FG puts UTEP up 16-14 at half.

Very poor Owl performance in the first half. On both sides of the ball. I’m expecting UTEP to be ahead, statistically. If Locksley had not been hurt the Miners would’ve probably managed a TD instead of the FG.

Without half time adjustments, we will lose this one. By at least 14.

Because this game is at altitude, an underrated stat (for this game) is TOP:

UTEP 20:33
Rice 9:27

When has that pitch back run ever gained more than one or two yards (at best)? Why do we still run it???
