Texas Tech Football

Fox Sports' Rich Cirminiello has a preview on 2007 Texas Tech opponent, Rice. The article makes it clear that the biggest offensive threat is wide receiver Jarett Dillard, but that this team still lacks real depth and talent:

Keeping the momentum going at Rice will be no small chore because once you get beyond wide receiver Jarett Dillard, the talent and depth at the program is still a cut below Conference USA's top teams. The Owls overcame a brutal non-conference schedule and injuries to quarterback Chase Clement to go 7-6 because they mastered winning close games and finishing strong, products of conditioning and faith in Graham's blueprint for the team. If Bailiff is going to get Rice back to the postseason, he must find a way to leverage those same intangibles because its deficiencies, especially on defense, won't be so easy to hide.
