Jeff Driskel has over 2400 passing yards so far this season, good for 10th in the nation. Rice is #107 in total defense and struggled with Army last weekend in the rain. The Bulldogs will become bowl-eligible with a win, and Driskel has the chance to further impress NFL scouts in a primetime Friday game.

Now, Driskel is no Manziel. Nonetheless, it wouldn't come as a surprise to learn that Bailiff had revisited his old tactics. Which animal do you think best prepares the Rice defense for Jeff Driskel? Answer in the comments.
