No discernible change in the Rice offense after the first series.

Defense gets a quick 3 and out. Owls will be on our 25.

RE: Rice @UTEP Game Thread
Equally strange play calls for them calling the RPO for a guy who’s clearly not much of a runner

I've been questioning it since the beginning of the season. Idiocy. Yes, it worked at Stanford with Love and McCaffrey, but both of those guys had exceptional vision, speed and cutting ability, not to mention an OL stocked with NFL prospects.

8 men in the box for JJ second run - someone should be open if they’ll let him throw

Stewart runs it to the 3. Trying for a FG. And it’s good.

Ultra conservative play calling. Playing not to lose as opposed to playing to win.

Rice 17. UTEP 16.

That was big to keep the defense off of the field. I've been to El Paso many times, and it definitely is tough to breathe (not Colorado Springs tough, but still difficult).

What is the elevation there? ~3000 ft?

This rotating QBs in the same set of downs drives me crazy. Yes, it worked this time, but it is NOT a way to run an offense.
