Rice (1-6) vs. Louisiana Tech (5-3) Game Preview

Game Time: 7:00 pm
Venue: Joe Allet Stadium, Ruston, LA
Network: Campus Insiders
It’s the best vs. the worst. Louisiana Tech is going to win the Conference USA West, and Rice is going to finish at or near the bottom, even after the offense finally got to have a little fun last weekend.
The Owls couldn’t seem to catch or create any breaks over the first half of the season on the way to a 0-6 start, but they finally got their paid scrimmage to deal with against Prairie View, putting up 66 points on the board as the offense kicked it into high gear.
But the nation’s worst pass defense gave up 44 points in the shootout.
Louisiana Tech doesn’t have the best passing game in the country, but it’s No. 2 with Ryan Higgins among the nation’s hottest passers throwing 24 touchdown passes and just three picks. The unstoppable receiver combination of Trent Taylor and Carlos Henderson will hit home run after home run in a terrify display of offensive firepower.
