Practices are open to the public and will start at 4:00 each day other than Saturday, March 9, which will begin at 10 a.m. Kickoff time for the Spring Game will be announced in the near future.
The Owls will welcome back a total of 57 lettermen (27 on offense and 30 on defense) and return a total of 19 starters from a team that won its last five games to finish 7-6.
Rice Football fans will receive a pair of special premiums if they put down a $25 deposit on 2013 season tickets by April 1. They 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.
The Owls will open the 2013 season on the road at Texas A&M. The home opener is set for September 14 when they host Kansas. Wednesday, March 6
