You can win a bar bet with this one: Which team has won more games in a row, Alabama or Rice? The answer, of course, is Rice, with five wins. The Crimson Tide won their last four, including the Bowl Championship Series title game.
Granted, the Owls didn't play the caliber of opponents Alabama did down the stretch, but Rice will take victories where it can get them. Usually that is in November and December. The Owls are 20-9 in those months since 2006.
It's August and September that are troublesome. Rice is 7-23 in those months since 2006.
