It’s been a wild ride for the Rice football corners this fall. Through two games and seven-plus weeks of practice, here’s where the Owls stand.
Last week I wrote in detail about the Rice football wide receivers, including comments on who would be the primary options against Southern Miss. Sure enough, Rice relied on essentially a three-wide receiver set in that game, with only five healthy wideouts making the travel roster.
The Owls are at home against UTSA this weekend, so counting heads for a bus trip won’t be important. That said, who is healthy enough to participate is a pressing matter, especially in the secondary. I have confirmed Rice expects to get at least one member of their defensive back corps back on the field for the first time when they take on UTSA.
Below I’ve compiled notes from practice this week and some comments from cornerback coach Gerard Wilcher. Our subscribers should also check out our bonus podcast this week with UTSA insider Jared Kalmus of Alamodome Audible.
