This 1977 plaque with art by Rob Singer showcases the rivalry between Rice and the University of Houston.
Rice did not fair well in that game, losing 51 – 21. Overall, 1977 was a tough year for the team. Coach Homer Rice‘s Owls won one game beating Idaho 31 – 10.
The football season starts on Thursday with an away game at Western Kentucky. We wish the Owls the best of luck this season.
