Rice football clinched bowl eligibility, downing the Owls from FAU to secure their sixth win of the season and allow us all to exhale.
The first play was scary, but Rice football responded well and found a way to make sure they scored at least one more point than the visiting Owls to secure back-t0-back bowl trips. The home Owls ground out a win in a game in which they felt like the much better team throughout. We talk through the win and try to make sense of some of the oddities along the way.

Recapping Rice Football vs FAU
- AJ Padgett and the Rice offense did just enough
- The offense is functional, but made a few costly mistakes
- Just get the ball to Luke McCaffrey and Dean Connors
- The defense played incredibly well, aside from the first play
- Rice is going bowling, possibly somewhere tropical?
- Six wins mattered for this team, and we’re glad they got there
