What’s Going To Happen
UTEP, Charlotte and UAB can argue it out for the honor of being the worst team in Conference USA. The loser of this might be close.
Back to work after a few things off thanks to Hurricane Irma, FIU cancelled on Indiana last week and now dives into conference play after struggling to get by Alcorn State a few weeks ago.
Rice couldn’t capitalize on any momentum from a blowout with over UTEP, getting picked clean by Kyle Allen and Houston last week.
The Owls should have time to work the passing game kicks out against a toothless FIU pass rush. The Golden Panthers have had turnover problems over the few two games under Butch Davis, and the offense hasn’t been able to get going.
Can the Owls throw? They couldn’t against Houston with Sam Glaesmann getting banged up, and they should struggle to get the offense moving for long stretches.
However, at home, the Owls should be able to run just well enough to overcome all of the other problems. It’ll be ugly, but Rice won’t care. It needs the W.
