UTEP Miners Game Notes

Gavin Hardison went 19-for-34 for 177 yards, one touchdown, and one interception against MTSU on Saturday. This is part for the course for Hardison. He rarely has over 200 yards passing and has only two games with multiple passing touchdowns.

Rice Owls Game Notes

Luke McCaffrey had four catches for 58 yards and a touchdown and ran once for 37 yards versus Charlotte on Saturday. After a couple forgettable games, McCaffrey exploded last week against La Tech and followed that up with a good outing against Charlotte. Of course, those team have arguably the two worst defenses in the FBS, so it can only get trickier from here.
