Texas 48, Rice 13

Sept. 14, 2019 • NRG Stadium, Houston

Now THAT’S more like it. The Horns handled the Owls, making Rice as malleable and the Krispie Treats.

The win was great, but the camaraderie was even better. We got to attend the game with our dear friend Wallis, a favorite Houstonian who doesn’t make it to Austin nearly enough. 

Great friends + great seats + a W = a great day!

Texas 42, Rice 28

It’s an old question. JFK even asked it.

“Why does Rice play Texas?”

The answer is money, of course (along with tradition, history, blah, blah, blah), but you’ve got to think that a secondary reason is the Owls’ status as a respectable but not-so-formidable opponent.

And yet, as our 21-0 lead dwindled to 7, the underdogs looked more formidable than ever.

Of course, the guys in burnt orange came through. Heard really stated his case to be The Guy, providing the “juice” our offense needed. Malik Jefferson continues to be a beast, and I can’t help but hope his toughness and spirit are contagious.
