Rice Spring Game

HOUSTON (April 11) – Rice Owl football fans who were hoping for a gaze into a clear crystal ball might have left Rice Stadium somewhat frustrated here after Friday night’s Blue-Gray Game, as the events of the evening yielded up not a lot of tangible information regarding this team’s fall 2015 prospects.

Several proven big-play producers had been held out of spring drills entirely, starting with quarterback Driphus Jackson and continuing with three top receivers and a couple of big men.

Rice coaches shuffled players in and out as if to give every squadman a piece of the action and a chance to show his wares. The ‘game’ was another one of those strange amalgams where points were accumulated by the defense for stops, as well as the offense for stats and scoring.
