Rice has postponed their 2013 football game at Wake Forest, MyFoxHouston.com has reported.
The Owls were scheduled to face the Demon Deacons at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, NC on Sept. 7, 2013. According to Rice athletics director Rick Greenspan, a new date is “being negotiated.”
The postponement of one game on Rice’s 2013 schedule was inevitable after the Owls announced last week that they were opening the season at Texas A&M and that the Bayou Bucket with Houston would continue.
Rice is also scheduled to host Wake Forest in 2014 on a date to be announced. It’s possible the game could be pushed back if the Bayou Bucket continues past 2013.
The only other non-conference game on the 2013 schedule for Rice is a home game against Kansas on Sept. 14. The Owls were slated to travel to UTSA on Oct. 12, but the Roadrunners enters Conference USA in 2013. That game will either become a conference game or it won’t be played.
Update (5/6/12): Chron.com reports that the 2014 game has also been postponed.
