2017 Rice Owls Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

There will be a problem against Stanford to kick things off, but a win at UTEP will at least get the ball rolling, with a win over FIU, and a loss at Pitt, the Owls will start 3-3 before beating Army and UTSA to get in the hunt for a bowl bid. That’ll happen a few weeks later with a win over UAB, and cemented with a regular season finish over North Texas.

2017 Rice Owls Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

Nothing works. The Owls get destroyed by Stanford, Houston and Pitt in September, and losses to UTEP and FIU mean a five-loss start before October. They can’t handle the Army option, lose at UTSA, and get rolled by Louisiana Tech before finally coming up with the first win of the season against UAB. There’s one more win coming somewhere, but a two-win season still stinks.
