Rice Owls | CUSA (West)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+5500), Win Conference (+50000)
SSA Model Pick: None
Mike Bloomgren sustained a successful run attack as the offensive coordinator at Stanford. But this year will be a difficult one for Rice, who was 1-11 last season and looked bad. After the spring game Bloomgren was quoted as saying, “We’re not where we need to be but thank god we’re not where we were.”

Win Total Analysis
3 wins (-125/+105)
SSA Model Pick: Over (High Confidence)
This will be a tough year for Rice, but they can win some games along the way. This team looked horrific last year and the Southpoint win total number reflects that. But last year was last year and things should be different this year. Throw in the fact that they get a gimme against Prairie View A&M and you only need to find two more wins to push. At Hawaii and home games vs UTSA, UTEP, and ODU are all possible wins for the Owls.
