How can Rice fix this? How can it turn things around and salvage something out of a lost season?
Losing to WKU, Army and Baylor is one thing, but to lose at home to North Texas is a massive problem – even if it was in double overtime.
There’s just no offense, and there’s just no defense. The lines are getting ripped up game after game, and it’s showing in the mistakes made on both sides of the ball.
This isn’t the right time to be going to Hattiesburg.
Southern Miss inexplicably lost to Troy, but everything else has been perfect so far with a defense that’s been the stunning star.
The offense was supposed to be the reason the Golden Eagles rocked in the Conference USA race, and it’s been fine, but it’s the defense that’s crushing running games with a tremendous start from the defensive front.
That’ll continue this week. Since the one thing Rice can sort of do well is run, it’s going to be a problem for the Owls to keep up after the Golden Eagles get up early.
