Rice vs. Memphis 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Game information for the Rice Owls' matchup with the Memphis Tigers this Saturday.

After a big road win over the Kansas Jayhawks in their second game of the season, the Rice Owls were off to a good start that has seemed to have gone for naught. In three consecutive losses, the Owls have allowed a combined 145 points as their defense hasn't been able to stop the likes of Lousiana Tech, Marshall or Houston.

Things haven't been much different for the Memphis Tigers, an 0-4 team that watched their margin of defeat grow in each week. After losing by three to Tennessee-Martin in their opener, they most recently were trounced by Duke, 38-14.

With such poor defenses, the odds makers expect quite the shootout, as they've set the over/under at 61.5 points. To get enough points for a win though, the Owls will need a strong showing from their dual threat quarterback, Taylor McHargue, who is expected to return to the team after an injury withheld him from their game against the Houston Cougars.

Time, Location: Saturday, Oct. 6 at 6 p.m. CT, Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Memphis, TN

Coverage: FCS Central

Spread: Rice is favored by 5.5 points.
