Game Preview

Rice coach Mike Bloomgren says his players can still remember how empty they felt after losing to Southern Miss last December in the Lending Tree Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

“They came to work every day over the last year with the mindset to not only return to a bowl but return as champions,” he said. “That determination drove them to close the season with wins in our last two games to earn this opportunity.”

That opportunity occurs on Tuesday in Dallas, where the Owls will play Texas State in the First Responder Bowl.
