Rice head football coach David Bailiff joined with Curtis Johnson of Tulane and David Shaw of Stanford on Tuesday to accept the 2013 American Football Coaches Association Academic Achievement Award on Monday during the President's Kickoff Luncheon at the AFCA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Presented by the Touchdown Club of Memphis, the AFCA Academic Excellence Award recognized Georgia, Rice, Stanford and Tulane for recording a 100 percent graduation rate for members of its freshman football student-athlete class of 2006.
This is the first time Georgia and Tulane have been honored, while it is the second honor for Rice and Stanford. The Owls shared the award in 2010 with Northwestern and have annually recognized for maintaining a graduation rate of 90% or better.
Rice and Stanford each won conference titles this season, while all four honorees earned berths in bowl games.
