I like Rice here. Notre Dame hasn't been great in home openers against mostly mediocre opponents, and they're always overpriced. They beat Temple last year by 22, but Temple had only two wins last year - Army and Memphis. Rice is no Temple. They've won 15 of their last 19, including a win over Marshall in the CUSA championship.They also have a QB that can run as well as throw, and I like him matching up against an ND front seven that will have five new starters this year.

ND has only rolled a couple times in season openers in the last decade......they tend not to cover that kind of number in this situation......over should be a no brainer....Rice can move the ball up and down a field and ND has a mostly rebuilt front seven and an average secondary at best right now.

Rice's leading WR from 2013 Jordan Taylor is "questionable" with a foot injury leading to this Saturday's game.

“If he’s pain-free he’ll play,” Rice coach David Bailiff said Monday. “If not, we’re going to hold him. We’re going to be smart with him.”

The way I read that statement is he will be a no go.

Big ND fan here...Irish never seem to cover any kind big spread especially in the opener. On the other side of the coin, Kelly finally has 3 super mobile QB's and a  great offensive line that might be capable of a blowout. Have no idea with the Defense since we have a new coordinator that lost some impact players namely Kelvarae Russell.

Normally I would take the points but ND Offensive does have the potential to be explosive. I'd steer clear and see what the Irish have before investing!

Good info Jack. The Rice coach Ken Hatfield is one of the more underrated college coaches in football. He knows Rice will always be Rice and he knows how to get the most from his less than blue chip recruits. Rice has an athletic mobile QB which seems to be what you need it college football today. My guy says their WR Taylor will sit. ND players should be bigger stronger and faster but are they 21 points bigger stronger and faster? Probably a no play is the best answer for now.

I got stuck in the time machine with Marty McFly. Ya looks like I was about ten years off with the Hatfield reference. My dad still calls the Houston Texans the Houston Oilers from time to time. David Bailiff rolling his eyes at me.
