One day after possibly playing their last home game, the Rice Owls learned they will take the field at Rice Stadium one more time as the Owls will host Marshall in the 2013 Conference USA Football Championship game on Saturday, December 7. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. and will be broadcast nationally by ESPN 2.
Tickets for the game will go on sale at 10 p.m. tonight at RiceOwls.com or by calling 713 522 OWLS (6957) or visiting the Rice Athletic Ticket Office beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Monday. The ticket office will be open from 8:30 to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets are $45 Chairback, $30 Reserved Lower, $20 General Admission Adult, $13 General Admission Youth.
Rice season ticket holders will have the opportunity to order their same seats for the game until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Orders received by 5 p.m. on Monday will be mailed. All fans are encouraged to use the print at home option when ordering online. Orders purchased after Monday can be picked up in the ticket office each day or at Will Call on Saturday at 8 a.m.
Season ticket holders will receive addition information via email with addition instructions.
The Owls earned the right to host by virtue of having a final higher ranking in the combined BCS computer polls. They captured the West Division title with a 17-13 win over Tulane on Saturday.
