Rice and San Jose State set a single-game, non-overtime combined scoring record when San Jose State beat the Owls 70-63. What's most interesting is the different approaches the two teams took on offense, perhaps fueled by what they saw as the other team's weakness. San Jose State had 372 yards passing and just 83 yards rushing, a pass-heavy offense one would expect from such a high-scoring game. Rice, however, was the complete opposite, gaining only 64 yards through the air and a whopping 570 yards on the ground.
