It's another episode of The Roost Podcast, and maybe the game that Matt and Carter are previewing in it will actually happen! After some scheduling discussion (well, it's really more like exasperated ranting, because what else is there to say at this point), they get into previewing Rice's toughest opponent of this strange, abbreviated season. Plus, should college football games be made into three-way battle royale wrestling matches? All that and more!

Losing is no fun! On this episode of the Roost Podcast, Matt and Carter break down Rice's disappointing loss to North Texas in Denton. They offer bold suggestions for the team (such as: stop fumbling!) and discuss how much more gut-wrenching it is to lose a game like that when you have real expectations. Then, it's on to a preview of this weekend's showdown with UTEP. Can the Owls rebound against a team they're rightfully favored against? We'll see!

As of publishing time for this episode, Rice's game with North Texas is still on, so . . . fingers crossed! With no game to review for the second week in a row (sigh), this episode of the Roost Podcast dives into the match-up in Denton. Can the Owls stop the Mean Green's explosive offense? Can they sustain drives against a, uh, questionable run defense? Matt and Carter are here to talk all that and more (and to mourn the loss of a midmorning Friday C-USA game in a high school stadium)!

Are Matt and Carter capable of recording an episode of The Roost Podcast that's under an hour? It turns out they are (barely)! With last week's unfortunate cancellation of the UTSA game, there's a bevy of COVID-related scheduling news to talk over, plus some positive news about Rice's secondary depth. Then, we preview this weekend's game in Ruston against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs.

Winning is fun! The Roost Podcast is back, with Matt and Carter breaking down Rice's biggest win of the Bloomgren era over the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. They break down the fantastic performances on both sides of the ball, including Mike Collins' brilliant game and solid play from a secondary that's farther into the depth chart than anyone expected.
