After six hours on the bus (including the traditional stop for lunch in Sam's Restaurant in Fairfield on the way up), the Rice Owls went through their normal Friday routine with a walkthrough at Fouts Field.
However, this walkthrough was not your normal affair, as the North Texas Cheerleaders were on the field as well for a photo shoot. Look for a seperate blog on some thoughts about various walkthrough traditions of years past later tonight..
Those of you tuning in to the Rice radio broadcast tomorrow should not fret if the pregame show is partially pre-empted. ESPN 97.5 is carrying the Miami-Ohio State broadcast as part of their ESPN radio olbigation, and that game could cut into the pregame show. The Rice-North Texas game will be on ESPN 97.5, rest assured.
