With the days rapidly counting down to the start of the 2017 Rice football season, Owls head coach David Bailiff as well as offensive coordinator Billy Lynch and defensive coordinator Brian Stewart will hit the road from July 11-13 for the annual Rice Football Coaches Caravan.
The 2017 tour of Texas starts on Tuesday, July 11 with an event in Dallas, followed by a stop in San Antonio on July 12 before concluding with an event in Austin on July 13. Information on a final event in Houston will be released later.

Rice and Stanford will open the college season in Sydney, Australia on August 26 when they face off in the second Sydney Cup, which will mark not only the earliest start to a season for the Owls, but also their first football game outside the United States. The 2017 home schedule kicks off four weeks later when the Owls host FIU.
Season tickets for the 2017 Rice Football campaign are currently on sale now, starting as low as $90. They can be purchased online or by calling 71130348-OWLS.
