Rice Athletics was happy to assist The Heritage Society in a special project to coincide with the return of the Super Bowl to Houston entitled "Bayou City Blitz: The History of Houston Football".
The exhibit features memorabilia and photos documenting the growth of the sport in Houston at all levels and features a pair of trophies for the city's first two bowl championships which were won by Rice (1938 Cotton Bowl and 1947 Orange Bowl).
Another aspect of the exhibit is a round table series of panel discussions on various Houston football topics and the third of this series will be devoted to the history of Rice Football. Ray Alborn, Bucky Allshouse, Trevor Cobb and Jarett Dillard will make up the panel discussion, which will be moderated by Nate Griffin from Fox 26, on Wednesday, March 8 from 7-8:30 p.m.
The event will be held in The Heritage Society Tea Room and is free to pubic.
