    Assured of a chance

    It seems to me that with today's win we assured ourselves of at least a chance to play for the West Division's spot in the CUSA championship game in our final home game. Rice has lost once in league play. Even if (and I certainly don't think it will happen) we lost to both UAB and ODU and Rice lost no more we would get the tie breaker if we beat them on Nov 29. Am I thinking clearly on this?

    Doesn't Rice still have to play Marshall? I think there's a good chance that our game against them is of no consequence. UAB will be challenging, but if we play like we did today, we'll be fine.

    If Tech loses to UAB and Old Dominion, and if Rice wins all of their conference games (including the one with UTEP) before our game with them on November 29th, then the Tech-Rice game will be for the C-USA Western Division Title and a bid in the C-USA Championship Game.

    That said, just beat UAB next week.

    We also have to worry about UTEP behind us. Tech is 5-0 in conference play, but Rice AND UTEP are 3-1 each.

    Need to fill all our bowls to ensure some of Benson's boys have to stay home if they get more than two teams eligible.

    So, if Marshall drops one and we win out, we host the CG? That'd be awesome.

    Rice is probably the only chance of them losing. If Rice wins out and does beat Marshall and we also win out, then the Rice game would also be for the division championship.

    Rice's remaining schedule

    Nov 8--vs UTSA
    Nov 15--at Marshall
    Nov 22--vs UTEP
    Nov 29--at Louisiana Tech

    If Tech and Rice win out heading to November 29, then that game would be for both the division championship and host spot in the championship game. UTEP will be no picnic for the Owls coming off Marshall.

    I see Sagarin has Rice with only two more losses - Marshall and us I assume.
