What’s Going To Happen
It’s been an awful year for both teams, but even after all of the pain and anguish for Old Dominion, it’s still got a shot at a bowl game by winning the last two games.
The Monarchs turned things around over the last two weeks with wins over Charlotte and FIU, and now need to beat Rice and Middle Tennessee to get to six wins.
The rushing of Ray Lawry has been the difference, coming off missing most of the first half of the season to roll at times in the second half. With 168 yards and two scores in the win over FIU, he’s a difference-maker.
Rice doesn’t have those.
The Owls can’t stop anyone on third downs, and they’re having a bigger problems with turnovers. Old Dominion will convert those third downs, it’ll be a +2 in turnover margin, and Lawry will crank out more than 150 yards as the Monarchs keep bowl hopes alive.
