The Silver Glove Trophy is on the line this weekend when crosstown rivals Houston and Rice meet up for a three-game C-USA series. The No. 6 ranked Owls (31-12, 11-4 C-USA) will host the Cougars (14-26-1, 3-11-1 C-USA). The series marks Rice's return to play after a ten-day break for final exams and continues an 11-game homestand.
At the moment, the Owls are poised to host a first round Regional in the NCAA Tournament, clinching their 20th consecutive 30-win season and sitting in the Top 8 nationally in five out of six polls. However, the strength of Rice's schedule is backloaded to a crucial final week against ranked in-state rival Sam Houston State and a three game series at C-USA rival Central Florida to close conference play.
