Rice to Play . . . Western Michigan??

Rice is officially in the Texas Bowl versus Western Michigan, December 30.

The Texas Bowl wanted to get Notre Dame, but they went to the Hawaii Bowl. Bah. Now Rice has to play a MAC team.

(I can imagine WMU alumni saying something very similar about this match-up: "WMU to play . . . Rice?? Why do we have to play some small-school C-USA team??")

Identical records.
Adjacent to each other in CBS Sportsline Poll (34-35) (even though they say Rice had an easier schedule).
Should be a good matchup.

Both schools have one thing in common, Both could have beaten UW bat at least 3 points.
