UTSA (2-3) vs. Rice (1-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Rice has lost four straight, but it finally gets to come back how after traveling to Hawaii, and then to Southern Miss, and then to Wake Forest.
The running game has been solid, the pass protection solid, and the ball control style might just work.
The UTSA offense isn’t doing much at all, ranking last among all Conference USA teams with no downfield passing game, not enough of a ground attack, and with way too much dinking and dunking.
However, that defense can slow down the run. Can Rice throw enough to get the job done?
Not really, but the Roadrunner offense really really doesn’t have a ground game, and it’s going to sputter too much against an Owl defense that’ll be fine playing someone its own size – and at home.
