Which chain is Texas vs Rice?
The Longhorns are back home this weekend as Texas (1-1) host Rice (0-2) in the last non-conference game of the season. Texas enter Saturday’s game as a 26-point favorite against Rice, according to Caesars Sportsbook. First year head coach Steve Sargsyan took a big step this week when he announced the junior quarterback Casey thompson will get his first career start against the Owls in place of the first-year QB in a red shirt Hudson. The decision to pitch Thompson came after Card and the offense struggled to get started in the Week 2 loss to Arkansas.
