Rice Owls national broadcasting appearance with consecutive games
Appearing consecutively in national broadcast is huge feat for any college football team. This coming season, Rice Owls will be making five consecutive appearances on national television hosting a number of other teams in home games. Rice streak of consecutive home games will start on August 30 and their season finale against North Texas is scheduled on the 23rd of November 2019.
These consecutive home games for Rice will be the first time since 1986 when they started the season with 4 consecutive games in their home field. They welcomed SMU, Lamar, Texas State (then Southwest Texas) and Texas to Rice Stadium for a series of well-fought home games.
College football and the significance of media exposure
CBS will cover Rice Owl’s first 4 games against Army, Wake Forest, Texas and Baylor. Their season finale against North Texas will be broadcasted by the NFL network. Rice Owl’s remaining 7 games will then be covered by one of the streaming platforms of the conference.
The opportunity to compete on national television consecutively for a number of games gives the team better exposure to audience, investors and scouts. This also gives players an opportunity to showcase their clients to potential scouts in hopes of being drafted in to the professional league.
