It's also way too early to chalk up Houston as a sure loss - let's see what their roster looks like before we make any predictions there. I will say the conference schedule shapes up as a harder set-up with tougher road games (La Tech, Marshall, USM, North Texas). And two of the four home games are UTEP and UTSA, which honestly are going to be potential wins, home or road.

It will be interesting if LSU wins the national title. When was the last time we hosted the defending national champion? Or even played the defending national champion? From my fading memory, I know we played Notre Dame in 1988, the year they won the national title, but that was on the road. And maybe we played Texas the year they won it with Vince Young? But I don't remember if we played them the following year? I guess LSU has a ways to go before they can make that claim though.

Rice hosted Texas (at NRG) on September 16, 2006, and lost 52-7. Texas won the national title in the 2005 season.
