Rice football never got to kickoff against UTEP. Carter and Matthew discuss the Owls’ third postponement and preview the Marshall game.
Things were going well for Rice football when they woke up last Saturday morning, but shortly before kickoff, the Owls scheduled home game against UTEP was delayed and eventually canceled. Carter and Matthew work through the disappointment from the Owls’ third postponed game in their last four weeks and discuss the ramifications of the disjointed scheduling.
From there, it’s Marshall preview time. The Herd lead Conference USA in several key statistical categories, making it a tough challenge for the Owls on the road.
