It’s a Conference USA showdown on Thursday night between two teams who have had completely different seasons. The Rice Owls will make the trip to Tennessee to take on the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders.
The Blue Raiders have won the last two games played between the two teams.
No one had high expectations for the Rice Owls this season, and that’s a very good thing, because they have been terrible so far this year.
They come into this game with a 5-18 record and only have had one road win all year. For the Owls they have struggled on both sides of the ball, but it has started on the offensive side.
They are currently averaging only 66.5 points per game, and although the defense hasn’t been great either, if they want any chance in this game the offense needs to be better.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
On the other side of this match up is the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders who have had a really nice season, and look like they could make the big dance if they finish the season strong.
They have won nine of the last ten games with the only loss coming against Marshall. They have also done a good job of covering the spread going 4-1 ATS in the last five games.
For the Blue Raiders, they are a good defensive team giving up only 65 points per game. In this game they need to really lock down on that side of the ball.
