Having a game thread worked against the Cowgirls' narrow win in exhibition against Fort Hays State this week, so I'm trying it again. I fear if OSU plays a similar game against Rice, they could be in for a loss. My only reason to be optimistic at this juncture is the Owls lost to Prairie View A&M on Friday. Maybe that'll help out. The game is slated to tip at 2 p.m. from Gallagher-Iba Arena.
