Rice unveils new Owl-centric logos, because owls are awesome

WATCH: Rice player solves Rubik’s Cube…behind his back in under a minute

Rice left tackle Calvin Anderson can do so much more than a simple three-point stance while protecting his quarterback.

Most of the general population can’t solve the puzzle once. Anderson, though, can do it behind his back in the neighborhood...

Rice Owls Make School History With Win Over Fresno State in Hawaii Bowl

Post season success is not something the Rice Owls football program is accustomed to. Since 1912 the team has been to a bowl game just a dozen times including Wednesday's Hawaii Bowl against Fresno State. That's an awful long history and not too many bowl games, but if recent history is any indication the Owls may become post season regulars.Should that be the case they will be setting...

Rice Linebacker Nick Elder Comes to Johnny Manziel's Defense

Johnny Manziel had to wait a half to make his debut for the 2013 college football season, but once he got on the field he wasted little time putting his own stamp on the game.
