Rice 38, Western Michigan 14  
Texas Bowl. It wasn't remotely as close as the score -- Rice didn't give up a point (and could probably have tacked on a few more) until they put in the scrubs in the fourth quarter (38 unanswered points to start the game).

Their first bowl win since 1954.

Their first 10-3 season since... Ever? Probably since at least then (okay, 1949 apparently).

I mean, they're actually pretty good.

As for the Broncos of Western Michigan, well... That name hasn't been a particularly lucky one this week.

I'm pretty sure I'm not in the same universe I went to school in, this is some sort of alternate universe.

Also, ran into an old college friend at the bowl watching party downtown, had a great time. I kinda wish I'd had a DVR for this, and a station I could have recorded it off of (not just for nostalgia's sake, the TVs at the ESPN Zone were also tiny and useless, barely even saw the game. Not recommended).

Congrats on the win.

LSSU plays Western in Hockey. I've been to Kalamazoo for games a couple of times in the past.

Happy New Year!

I was just driving through Kalamazoo yesterday.

It's the same universe, or we both switched over to this one, or I switched from a different but almost identical universe that was the same in that important detail, but different in some other fashion.

The simplest answer is that its the same universe; it's just that football is once again a priority at Rice (perhaps with the new president) and so Rice is getting a new student body mix in athletics... (lowered admissions standards for players or more money or both).
