Breaking down and analyzing the 2019 Rice Owls football schedule.
2019 Rice Owls Football Schedule Analysis
– It’ll be running on running action when the Owls go to Army to start the season, but it’ll likely be an 0-4 start with Wake Forest, Texas and Baylor to follow. All three Power Five games are at home, but … it’ll take a miracle to win one of them.
– The Owls only leave Texas three times – Army, UAB and Middle Tennessee. That’s a problem considering all three are likely losses. Playing North Texas at home should help a bit, and getting Louisiana Tech in Houston is a break, too.
– Playing Marshall from the East stinks, but the Owls miss Florida Atlantic and FIU. In all, it might be a difficult slate for them, but there are more than enough winnable games to expect a decent turnaround.
