Since losing to Tulsa 63-28 in the first week of October, the Owls have collected three straight wins and now sit on a second-place perch behind the Golden Hurricanes. With its best conference start (5-1) since 1960, Rice is in rare territory. The impressive part about their wins is the relatively small difference (370-336) they have outscored opponents thus far, including two five-point wins in the last three weeks.

In an up-and-down rebuilding year, Bobby Petrino's boys have pulled two upsets on previously-ranked opponents. A week after losing to Ole Miss, the Razorbacks welcomed Tulsa to Fayetteville, and they just wouldn't let the Golden Hurricanes leave with a win. Petrino is gaining capital to spend on the recruiting trail before he builds up Arkansas and leaves for his next job.
