UAB Blazers vs. Rice Owls. The NCAAF Pick for this game is Rice +8.5. The Rice Owls proved that their defense is capable of stopping the offense of a much stronger team like the Marshall Thundering Herd as they held them scoreless at 20-0. The Owls are the only team that overpowered the top-ranked Marshall team in the C-USA East. Offensively, Rice has an average of 25.25 points per game while UAB recorded 30.4 points per match. However, the Owls’ defense is much better as they allowed just 18.2 points per match-up and the Blazers gave-up 23.4 points per contest.
