What’s Going To Happen
Something has to work.
UTEP got its doors blown off by Oklahoma, but at least it got a score on the board in the first half to make the Sooners still try.
The offense is better than it showed in Norman, but there wasn’t anything rolling with just 167 yards of total offense. Meanwhile, the defense got hit for close to 700 yards.
Rice not only got embarrassed by Stanford in Australia, but it came back to the nightmare of Harvey and the aftermath of what it wreaked on the Houston area.
Like UTEP, the offense didn’t do anything and the defense didn’t have any answers.
Now the two teams get to play an opponent of its own size.
At home, UTEP will get the running game going just enough against the Owl defensive front to push ahead early on, and while Rice will have its moments and hang around for a full four quarters, the Miners will have more balance.
