Rice Football Team To Remain At TCU Due To Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey has led to catastrophic flooding which has caused havoc in the Houston area and forced residents to seek shelter, that includes the Rice football program.
As a result of the flooding, the Owls made the trip to TCU after returning to the states.
Rice opened the season with a 62-7 loss to Stanford in Australia last weekend and were forced to find a new home until it was safe to return to the Houston area.
As things currently stand, it doesn’t look like Rice will be leaving anytime soon.
“We’re coming back to Houston as soon as our administrators say it’s safe,” Owls head coach David Bailiff said, via Mark Berman of Fox 26.
Baliff previously worked with TCU head coach Gary Patterson and athletic director Chris Del Conte, when he served as assistant head coach, defensive line coach and defensive coordinator, so there is plenty of familiarity there.
Luckily for Rice, the Owls do not have a game again until Sept. 9.
Whether they’ll be able to return home before then remains to be seen, but at least for now they have a place to continue their preparations as the Owls look to bounce back from their big loss to the Cardinal.
