  12/10/20 - Mike CollinsrSr/2021, Rice, 6-5, 225 (DS#23 QB) + More +

  Last season, Marshall went to Houston to face a winless Rice team and left with a hard-fought 20-7 win over the Owls. In the contest, talent on the Rice side of the football was evident, but there was one glaring missing piece for the Owls - a solid quarterback. This season, Rice head coach Mike Bloomgren hasn't had such issues as TCU transfer Mike Collins stepped in nicely to bring some consistency to the Owls' offense. The Thundering Herd (7-0 overall, 4-0 Conference USA, ranked No. 15 by the Associated Press) gets a look at that offense Saturday when Rice (1-2, 1-2) comes to Joan C. Edwards Stadium for a noon kickoff.

Due to COVID-19, Rice has only played in three games so far this season, but Collins has been solid in all three outings. "The one thing that they're a little different this year is that they've got that transfer quarterback in there that's given them some stability at the quarterback position," Marshall head coach Doc Holliday said. Rice went from some of the league's worst quarterback play en route to an 0-9 start last season to Collins, who leads Conference USA in passing efficiency and has the Owls' offense moving methodically. Collins is coming off his best statistical performance, even though it came in a 27-17 loss to North Texas last Saturday. He finished 23 of 34 for 327 yards and two touchdowns. - Charleston Gazette

  12/05/20 - Naeem SmithSr/2021, Rice, 5-11, 197 (DS#999 SS) + More +

  Safety Naeem Smith returned one of five Marshall interceptions for a touchdown and Rice shocked the 15th-ranked Thundering Herd 20-0 on Saturday. The three-touchdown underdog Owls (2-2, 2-2 Conference USA) beat a ranked opponent for the first time since 1997 despite being without their two top offensive weapons and getting outgained 245 yards to 213. Marshall (7-1, 4-1) saw its bid to keep a perfect season going end. Rice was missing quarterback Mike Collins and leading wide receiver Austin Trammell, who did not play due to undisclosed injuries unrelated to COVID-19.

Backup quarterback JoVoni Johnson had not attempted a pass in two previous games this season. The Owls didn't need his arm much, using its ground game behind freshman Khalan Griffin to eat up clock time against the nation's top rushing defense. What opportunities Marshall had, it threw away. Redshirt freshman Grant Wells had by far his worst game of the season. Coming off a five-touchdown performance against Middle Tennessee on Nov. 14, Wells went 18 of 35 for 165 yards. His five interceptions Saturday surpassed his total of four from the previous seven games combined. - AP College Football

  10/31/20 - Mike CollinsrSr/2021, Rice, 6-5, 225 (DS#23 QB) + More +

  Mike Collins and Austin Trammell combined for three touchdowns and Rice beat Southern Mississippi 30-6 on Saturday. Collins was 12 of 17 for 233 yards passing and four touchdowns. Trammell finished with seven catches for a career-high 143 yards. Rice (1-1, 1-1 Conference USA) rolled to a 23-6 halftime lead, scoring two touchdowns 11 seconds apart. After Collins threw a short pass that Jake Bailey turned into a 72-yard score down the left sideline, the Owls recovered a fumble off a pooch kickoff. On the next play Collins threw a 25-yard score to Trammell to lead 16-0.

A fumble recovery set the Owls up at the Southern Miss 17 and a 13-yard pass to Trammell made it a 20-point second quarter for Rice. The third Collins-to-Trammell TD connection came on a 14-yard pass in the fourth quarter. Juma Otoviano finished with 111 rushing on 25 carries for the Owls, who outgained the Golden Eagles 412-269. Southern Miss (1-5, 1-2) is on its third head coach of the season with assistant head coach Tim Billings taking over for Scotty Walden. Walden announced Tuesday he was taking the head coaching job at Austin Peay. Walden had been serving as the Golden Eagles' interim head coach since Jay Hopson resigned following a loss to South Alabama in the team's opener on Sept 3. Billings oversaw the Eagles in their loss at Liberty last weekend after Walden tested positive for COVID-19. Billings will serve as interim coach the remainder of the season. - Rice/AP College Football
