Houston Team News
The Houston Cougars are featuring a great defensive lineup. Ed Oliver, Darrion Owens, and Nick Watkins will be strong defensive players which will make it extremely tough for the Rice Owls to break inside.
The major dual-threat on the Cougars team is the starting quarterback D’Eriq King. King has impressive stats in the five latest games. He is going to be the main offense that the Owls will have to deal with.
At the end, the Cougars want a strong opening game and they’ll do anything to have one.
Rice Team News
The Rice Owls have an under-matched offense. In Total Offense, they were number 115, which is pretty bad. But there have been changes and improvement. This time, the offense can be quite different, making it hard to deal with. Owls fans hope that’s the case becuase it will be a strong weapon against the Houston Cougars in the match later today.
Last week, Emmanuel Esukpa had a great game. The Owls are rooting for him. He has what it takes to make the Cougars fall into a somewhat distressing situation, especially on the defensive front. Further, the duo of Jackson Tyner and Shawn Stankavage will be good compliment to Austin Walter as well as Esukpa. They’re dynamic and strong quarterbacks.
