The Texas Longhorns will welcome the Rice Owls to town for their once annual Austin vs. Houston in-state matchup.

HISTORY: This quietly one of the more important rivalries in both schools’ history. They met every season from 1914 to 1999. Texas holds a lofty 73-21-1 series lead.

Rice Owls

The Rice Owls opened the season with a pair of double-digit rivalry losses to Arkansas and Houston. They’ll hope to avoid a third, but the Owls will have there work cut out for them this week.

Luke McCaffrey is finding life at Rice can be tough. The Nebraska transfer struggled last weekend against Houston, going 9-19 for 86 passing yards with one touchdown to three interceptions.

Khalan Thomas led the team in rushing last season, but he hasn’t had much room to run just yet this year. The freshman back has only gained 121 rushing yards on 32 carries, while fellow freshman back Ari Broussard has 56 yards on 14 touches.

Leading receive August Pitre III missed last week, but he caught four passes for 97 yards and a score against Arkansas. Senior tight end Jordan Myers led the team with five catches for 41 yards and a score.

Rice took a lead into halftime against Arkansas, and they’ve been outscored 75-14 since.

Texas Longhorns

Rice wasn’t the only team Arkansas beat, as the Texas Longhorns were victims of the Razorbacks last weekend. Texas went into halftime down 16-0 and they never recovered, losing 40-21.

The Longhorns have question marks at the quarterback position. Neither Hudson Card or Casey Thompson has separated themselves in the first two weeks. Thompson may draw the start this week, as he’s more of a threat on the ground. Thompson went 5-8 for 57 passing yards, and two rushing touchdowns.

Bijon Robinson is the key the Texas’ offense. After leading the team in rushing as a freshman, he got off to strong start in the opener with 103 rushing yards and a score.

Jordan Whittingham also had a strong game against Louisiana-Lafayette, catching seven passes for 113 receiving yards, including a 41-yard touchdown.

DeMarvion Overshown leads a solid Longhorn defense that’s much more capable than they appeared last weekend. The Razorbacks gashed them for 333 rushing yards.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Pick

This is the perfect spot for Texas to avenge an ugly loss last weekend. The Longhorns covering the lofty spread is a different story.

4* Free Week 3 NCAA Betting Pick: Over 52.5

Texas could very well cover the blowout spread, but we feel the over is the safer route. If things bode well, the Longhorns could potentially cover it themselves. The Longhorns need to respond, and taking on the Owls at DKR could be just what they need. Take the over and the lofty spread, as Texas should take care of business and defeat Rice.
