GAMEDAY. All of the angst Aggies feel after a difficult offseason will be crammed into a sweltering concrete barn of hate today. The game vs. the Rice Owls at Kyle Field kicks off at 12:00 pm. If you're not already driving, you will be late. Watch the game on ESPN if you can't make it out to College Station. Listen to the game live on the Aggie Athletics website.

Last Minute Toilet Reads. Learn what the Aggie defense must do to stop Rice other than just having some players to put out there. SpreadsheetAg has already simulated the game statistically, so you can go to the movies instead of Kyle Field if you want. Brent Zwerneman notes that the Aggies have some big wide receivers.
Who is the starting QB? We know that Johnny Manziel will not be available until the second half, so who is getting the nod? According to Taylor Hamm of GigEm247, it will be senior Matt Joeckel.
