They Won no titles. They have no star- tduched players. But they play football that's close to- the ground and as fundamental as the good earth. The Owls won seven games and lost three this fall. But their three losses all were squeakers. Their total point deficit in those games was eleven. They lost 16 to 13 to Georgia Tech, by a score oi 3 to '0 to Arkansas and 12 to 7 to Baylor. In 10 games, the Owls gave up only 58 points, which is a couple of ticks Under an average of six points .per game. When you consider that seven >f their ten games were against Southwest Conference schools and the three outsiders were named Georgia Tech, Tulane and Florida, you can see how good the Rice defense was. Nobody connected with the school is making any alibis or claims, but it seems likely that a couple of those losses could lave been reversed with a little bit of luck. The veteran Jess Neely, a fundamentalist from the opening whistle, is the Rice coach. It is axiomatic in southwest ill that Neely's teams im- as the season winds along.

Th starting eleven is called "The Gold Crowd", fha second termed "the Whits Crowd' The line in the first unit is built around two Kings and Lively' guard. The two Kings are brothers — Rufus, a guard and Boyd King, whd plays center. The lively gii^rd is Bob Lively, a tearing,terror on both offense and defense. Rufus was a standout guard in 1959 and seemed to be going in the, same direction this fall But he Injured a knee in mid- season. At -last word he was okay for the Sugar Bowl game The.-tackles are George Karam and -Bob Johnston. The ends are Gene Raesz and Johnny Burrell. Burrell is a dandy pass-catcher and. is so nifty at his fakes that Ole Miss' may well have to double team him on pass plays.

On Jan. 6, the Baytown Ganders will come to Brazosport from a rival scout after one Rice game this fall . . i "He looks like a lineman but passes like Otto Graham." Cox competed 56 per cent of his aerials .his fall and ran for six touchdowns himself. Al Hartman, a ;all pass-master, was his number one replacement for most of the season, but at the end, a sophomore named Randy Kerbow was coming on with giant strides. The halfbacks are Bob Wayt and Max Webb with Jerry Candler the number one replacement. Wayt is the breakaway back and also a dangerous man down field under a pass> Roland Jackson is' the first string fullback with Mike Bowen in reserve. , Jackson also is a thumping inebacker and may turn out to >e a pretty important man in Rice's defense against-the resourceful Mississippi offense. . All in all, Rice shades up as well-knit team. The-second unit is rated almost as good as he first, which should help if he weather is muggy in New Orleans. The Rice defense is >ood — as we noted,earlier — jut it will be up egalnst its oughest assignment of the sea- on in the Sugar Bowli- .
