Rice Vs. SMU Game Time, TV Schedule And More

With no bowl to play for, the Owls hope to take back the Mayors' Cup for the first time in three seasons against SMU on Saturday.

Rice (4-7, 3-4 C-USA) is looking to avoid a second consecutive 4-8 season with a win over SMU today that would be the Owls' first road win in the C-USA in three seasons. Rice has lost 16 of their last 17 on the road. SMU has one the last two meetings of the Mayors' Cup, a trend Rice is trying to reverse to cap a season that almost returned the Owls to bowl eligibility.

Against Marshall October 15, running back Sam McGuffie was stripped of the ball while running out the clock with a three point win. The fumble gave the Thundering Herd a 24-20 win, a chance to stay alive in the C-USA title race and eventually ended Rice's hopes of a bowl season.
