The Rice Owls and Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560 , the home of Rice Football since 2011, are combining resources to provide expanded coverage of the Owls annual media day on Thursday, August 6.
YSR 1560 will originate a special Football Media Day show from the R Room from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the middle hour will be simulcast live for free on RiceOwls.com. Matt Perrault of YSR 1560 will join Owls broadcasters J.P Heath and Nate Griffin as hosts of the show, which will feature a full lineup of guests as well as head coach David Bailiff's press conference, which is slated to begin at noon.
Bailiff and the Owls will meet with the media on Thursday afternoon and then open their 2015 training camp later on Thursday afternoon for the first of 29 practices leading up to the 2015 season opener against the Wagner Seahawks on September 5 at Rice Stadium.
