Sure it's a big week for college soccer in the city when the Rice Owls host crosstown rival Houston. It's very big when the five Owl seniors will be honored before the start of their final home match. It's therefore extremely huge when those two events are one-and-the-same, and that is this Friday (Oct. 29) at the Rice Soccer Stadium. It goes without saying that Just For Kicks then becomes colossally huge on the "Senior Week/vs. Houston." Senior midfielder Kate Edwards is just as big in fielding Tuesday's tough J.F.K. questions.
