What’s Going To Happen
Just when it seemed like Rice was about to finally get a win over a team it should’ve been able to beat – it was favored – it lost to UTSA to start the season 0-7 with a tough run to come.
The Owl defense isn’t able to get off the field. There’s little to no pass rush, little to now offense to keep things moving, and it’s not catching any breaks when it comes to the turnover margin to come up with a few easy scores.
Southern Miss can get within a win of getting bowl eligible if it hits the layup at home, but it still has bigger goals than that. It lost to Louisiana Tech, but it’s still in the Conference USA title chase with UAB up next. There can’t be a mistake here.
The Golden Eagles lead Conference USA in third down conversions and passing offense – they can and will put this away with a few drives. They’re not great when it comes to the turnover margin, either, but it won’t matter – Rice won’t have the offense to keep up.
