Rice (1-2) vs. Southern Miss (1-1) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
How will Southern Miss work its quarterback situation? Kwadra Griggs was the team’s star last year, but he was suspended from the team for the first part of the season. He’s back, but Jack Abraham has been solid, connecting on 71% of his passes for 620 yards and six scores with two picks.
But it’ll be the defense that takes this one home.
The Golden Eagles have been amazing over the first two games on third downs, allowing teams to convert just 19% of their chances. But they’ve only played two games.
Rice is trying to install a pounding running game under new head coach Mike Bloomgren, and at the very least, it’s helped make the team more competitive.
But it’ll struggle to get the offense moving this week, and Abraham will look great on the way to a 250-yard passing day. Griggs will help carry the offense to over 300 yards through the air.
