The Bayou Bucket Preview

Prairie View exposed the Owls on the edge, especially in the first half. Rice turned up the aggression and gave the Panthers’ prime target, Tristan Wallace, more attention. Wallace is a great athlete, but Houston can deploy three or four comparable players at one time. But again, Houston is going to pound the rock until Rice demonstrates they can stop it. Once Rice makes a strategic move to stop the run, Katy bar the door because Houston will go over the top.
