Rice has little margin for error against No. 21 Baylor - Houston Chronicle
Rice defensive end Blain Padgett watched the first few drives of last week's SMU-Baylor game and came away with a simple observation. Before the Bears came out of hibernation in the second half and coasted to a 40-13 victory, the Mustangs forced Baylor to punt on its opening drive, took a 6-0 lead into the second quarter and were tied with the Bears at halftime. Mistake-prone Rice (0-2) is still trying to put it all together after losses at Western Kentucky Army, and the Owls will have a challenge against one of the best teams in the country over the last five years. Despite a tumultuous offseason that cost head coach Art Briles his job in the midst of a sexual-assault scandal, Rice coach David Bailiff doesn't expect the Bears to be much different mentally or schematically under interim coach Jim Grobe. Against Western Kentucky, Rice gave up 552 yards through the air.
