    The Owls get home-field advantage. Title game is at Rice Stadium. Kickoff is at 11 am.

    SOOOOO pumped for this game!

    I'm surprised we got to host, but definitely not complaining!

    The reasoning behind why we're hosting is dubious but you won't catch me complaining! What are the early lines?

    bigtexxx is going to great lengths in adjusting his schedule in order to attend

    see you there (will probably be in the roost most of the game hoisting brews)

    Okay, I'll be the Asian guy in his mid 20's in a Rice T-shirt :p

    Pretty cool to see that no matter what happens, we have matched the same level of success that Cougar High had with Case Keenum.

    Could Rice be the only team in Texas to win a conference championship this year?

    Nobody else is even close

    Um, yes they are. Baylor can still feasibly win the Big XII with an OSU loss in the Bedlam game and a Bears' victory over UT.

    very slight chance of that happening

    Baylor pissed away their chance by getting blown out in their only true test of the year.

    UTSA was one TD away from playing for this game :(

    Not bad for a 3rd year program though, I was very happy with the season.

    Hoping Rice wins since I don't have a horse in the race anymore, might as well go for the hometown team.

    To add to that. If OSU managed to lose, the Big XII championship is guaranteed to stay in Texas. Whoever wins Texas @ Baylor would win the Big XII in the scenario.

    yeah UTSA has been very impressive in their short existence. I definitely see them competing for championships soon.

    hahahaha. Best ESPN sign evar... not that it's a high bar.

    I just can't identify with our football team winning anything. All our math cheers ("e to the x, dy dx!" etc) only really worked when we were getting out butts whipped. What if those cheers started to... strike fear in the hearts of opponents.:eek:
