Great Rice Baseball to Watch This Weekend! 

With Tuesday's opener against Sam Houston State postponed this weekend, the Owls start the season off with tough matchups in the Minute Maid Classic at Minute Maid Park in Houston this weekend. Friday night they face Texas Tech and Sunday afternoon they face Kansas State.

But the big matchup is their first of four meetings against 5th-ranked Texas on Saturday Night at 7pm. The game will be televised on Fox Sports Southwest for baseball fans who want to see two of the top college teams in the country squaring off early.

The last time Texas saw Rice, they were jumping up and down in celebration after Justin Ruchti singled in Matt Cavanaugh in the bottom of the 9th off Longhord stud closer Huston Street to win 5-4 and eliminate the Longhorns from the 2003 College World Series.
