My husband is a Rice grad-he was one of about 20 people there in blue rooting for Rice. I kid. But, seriously, that stadium was FULL of orange. God, it was beautiful!
I took more pictures of half-time than during the game because I am a serious game-watcher. Also, there were football beverages to drink; and refs to yell at; and plays to debate...I have my priorities people! The game was pretty much a lock (although there have been many times when Rice has knocked us over). I wasn't too enthusiastic about the new Offensive game plan, which was run-run-run-run-run. I agree that our running game hasn't been great recently, but I would have liked to have seen Gilbert really get a chance to open up some passes. It was cool to see Chase McCoy (Colt's brother) play a little in the 4th quarter. Mainly I am just SO HAPPY that college football is back. It feels like all is right with the world.
