Rice football returns to the gridiron this week! The Owls’ host Middle Tennessee in their 2020 season opener. Carter and Matthew break down the matchup.
The extended offseason is over and it’s game week. For the first time this fall, we recorded a game preview. From the X’s and O’s and how Rice football matches up with Middle Tennessee to the crucial must-do’s to pull out a win, Carter and Matthew covered it all.
It wasn’t all game news, though. Injuries remain a focal point of the hand Rice has been dealt so far. The first depth chart is missing some key names and the Owls are going to have to start the season with some thin spots in the secondary and at wide receiver.
