Trip to Pittsburgh Completes Owls 2017 Non-Conference Schedule

Jan. 12, 2016

Rice and Pittsburgh will face off in football for the first time since 1951 when the Owls travel to the Steel City to face the Panthers on September 30, 2017.

The announcement of the game completes the Owls 2017 non-conference schedule. Rice is slated to open the 2017 campaign against Stanford on September 2 and then faces Houston at TDECU Stadium two weeks later, followed by hosting Army on September 23 and then wrapping up the slate with the trip to Pittsburgh.

The Owls have won the two previous meetings with the Panthers, taking a 14-7 decision in Pittsburgh in 1950 and then winning 21-13 the following year in Houston.
