The UTEP Miners take on the Rice Owls in a Conference USA battle down in Houston. The Owls currently lead the series 8-6, including a 5-2 record in Houston. The Miners are coming off a 31-13 home loss to #25 Southern Miss, while the Owls are fresh off a 75-34 loss to #13 Houston. The game should be a good one, but I've got the Miners winning.
