The Rice Owls and the UTSA Roadrunners have scheduled a 2012-13 home-and-home football series, Rice announced today.
Rice will host UTSA at Rice Stadium in Houston on October 13, 2012. The Owls will travel to face the Roadrunners at the Alamodome in San Antonio on October 12, 2013.
The addition of UTSA completes Rice’s 2012 non-conference football schedule. Rice hosts UCLA and UTSA and travels to Kansas and Louisiana Tech. In 2013, the Owls host Kansas and Louisiana Tech and travel to face Wake Forest.
UTSA, who plays their first football season in 2011, joins the WAC in 2012. The game against Rice is their first announced non-conference game for 2012. In 2013, the Roadrunners play host Oklahoma State and Houston and travel to face Arizona and Virginia.
