by Chuck Pool (email@example.com) - The Rice Owls historic road trip to face Stanford in the second annual Sydney Cup in Sydney, Australia, gets underway today, and The R Blog on RiceOwls.com will be your headquarters for all our coverage of the Owls first football game played outside the United States.
Our Athletics Communications team has joined forces with Rice's Office of Public Affairs office to provide comprehensive coverage of the six-day excursion.
We will be posting blog entries, videos and photos on The R Blog in addition to full coverage on our social media platforms including Facebook; Twitter (@RiceFootball); Instagram and SnapChat (RiceAthletics) .
In addition to continuous content, we will also be generating live content through "The Morning Stretch" on Periscope at the start of each practice in Sydney (between 7-8 p.m. Houston time) and offer a live recap of each day on Facebook Live, tentatively at 7 a.m. (Houston time).
Owls fans are encouraged to use the hashtag #OwlsDownUnder during the coming week.
