Prediction time: Rice

Army is a 11.5-point favorite at Rice (1-4) Saturday.
The Black Knights are 0-2 on the road this season, losing at Ohio State (38-7) and Tulane (21-17).
Rice’s lone win was 31-14 victory over UTEP in week two. Army is coming off a 35-21 home win against the Miners.
Rice has scored just 58 points in five games and only 27 in its four losses.

Sal Interdonato (Times Herald-Record Army football beat writer): Army 31, Rice 14. Critical game in Army’s season as Black Knights look to finish first half at 4-2. Fullback trio of Andy Davidson, Calen Holt and Connor Slomka have averaged a combined 200-plus yards over the last two games. Expect more of the same Saturday.
