Rice, UH Face Off Again After Graham's 900th Win

After another failed attempt to defeat crosstown-rival Rice, the Cougars will take another crack at it this afternoon at Cougar Field.

Houston fell to 22-24 overall with the loss, and 9-7 in Conference USA play. With the win last night, the Owls secured career victory number 900 for manager Wayne Graham, who is in in his 20th season at Rice. Graham remarkably has now notched his 19th consecutive season with 30 or more wins.

Since the "Silver Glove" series with the Cougars began in 1998, the Owls have won it 13 of 14 times, including 11 series in a row. If that's not enough to make Cougar stomachs everywhere turn, let's finish off this little bit of numerology with the fact that the Owls have beaten the Cougars in 12 straight games.

Rice is currently ranked 24th in the Baseball America College Baseball Poll.
