Rice football ran out of time at home against Tulane, missing out on what would have been a tremendous upset by a few points and falling to 4-4 on the season.
It didn’t look like things would be that tight when Rice football fell behind 27-7 at halftime, but the Owls held Tulane to just three points in the second half, buying time for their offense to get things into gear and turn a would-be-blowout into a close game. Unfortunately, Rice came up short. What went wrong and what can they salvage moving forward? We break it down in this week’s show.
