With the memories of an Armed Forces Bowl Championship fresh in their minds, Rice Football fans will have a chance to receive a pair of special bowl commemorative items by placing a deposit on 2013 Rice Football Season Tickets by April 1.
Season ticket deposits are just $25 per ticket and each 2013 season ticket account created by April 1 will receive the same special helmet decal that the Owls wore in the victory over Air Force as well as a copy of the 2012 Rice Football Highlight Video. In addition, all 2013 season ticket commitments will be invited to a special tailgate prior to a Rice baseball game this spring, featuring head coach David Bailiff and selected players.
While the 2013 Conference USA schedule has not been finalized, 2013 season tickets will include the Bayou Bucket showdown with Houston at Reliant Stadium in addition to a non-conference game with Kansas on September 14 and a slate of four C-USA games.
Rice will return 18 of 22 starters from the Armed Force Bowl victory over Air Force for the 2013 season, which will kickoff on August 31 when they face Texas A&M and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.
