#19 Rice Soccer vs Texas

Agreed, and I’ll take it.

Texas is one of the top teams in the country in VB. The fact we’ve beat them the last Two times is huge.

They are not ranked in soccer and we are, so they are not the standard to measure ourselves by.

The fact that we’re ranked and they’re not makes a tie disappointing.

But as was pointed out, given that we were outplayed… I’ll take it!!!

But we have not been playing as strong as last year’s team…

Texas is one of the top teams in the country in WBB. The fact we’ve beat them the last Two times is huge.

They are not ranked in soccer and we are, so they are not the standard to measure ourselves by.

I believe we beat them twice in VB, not BB
