Prairie View A&M at Rice preview

Start Time: 2:30 p.m. CST
Location: Rice Stadium, Houston
TV: None
Series: First meeting
Following a win by Miami of Ohio last weekend, Rice is the only winless team in FBS.

Once again, the Owls (0-6) were close to tasting victory, but could not get over the hump on Saturday. Haden Tobola missed a 42-yard field-goal attempt with 1:27 left that would have given Rice the lead. At the end of the game, Rice advanced to the UTSA 27, but the Owls did not have time for one last field-goal attempt.

“It’s the mental challenge, really, now. Are we going to find a way to win, or are we going to find a new way to lose?”

That quote actually came from Philip Rivers before the San Diego Chargers defeated Denver last week. But it seems to apply to Rice 2016. In addition to the latest way to lose, Rice has gotten blown out, fell in double overtime, had good offense when the defense struggled, and vice versa.
