We have reached week eight of the college football season, and most teams are now playing the conference portion of their schedule.
One of this games this weekend is a Conference USA showdown at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
The Rice Owls make the trip to take on the University of Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners. The Roadrunners have won each of the last three games played between the two teams.
To say the Rice Owls have had a bad season that might be an understatement. They come into this game with only one win and that was against the UTEP Miners.
That game they did play well and win by a final of 31-14, but the Miners still haven’t won a game yet this year so the win isn’t that impressive.
The Owls struggle on both sides of the ball but especially on the offensive side of the ball. They come into this game only averaging 11.7 points per game.
The most points they have scored in a loss was 12 points. They are turning the ball over way too much, and they really don’t have a lot of big play makers.
To win this game it’s going to take a near miracle, but it has to start on the offensive side of the ball. They need to try and get some early points in this game to get some confidence.
If they struggle early on with the scoring chances it’s going to be another long game filled with offensive struggles for the Owls.
On the other side of this match up is the UTSA Roadrunners who have had a very up and down season so far this year.
They started off the season beating Baylor and then winning a couple more games, but now they come into this game really struggling having lost two games in a row.
Not only did they lose both of those games they were also the favored team in this games. The biggest change in those two games was the struggle on the defensive side of the field.
The defense didn’t step up and making key stops down the stretch of the games, and it led to the struggles. To win this game the Roadrunners can’t let the Owls get settled in on the offensive side of the field.
If the defense plays well in this game, it could be blowout city pretty early on, and they could put on a good show for their home fans.
