Recap: Rice vs. TX-San Antonio

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Driphus Jackson threw for a touchdown and ran for another, and the Rice Owls claimed a 17-7 win over Texas-San Antonio in Conference USA action at Rice Stadium.

Jowan Davis ran for a game-high 121 yards on 25 carries as the Owls (6-3, 4-1 C-USA) became bowl eligible with their sixth straight win after starting the season 0-3. Jordan Taylor caught nine passes for 92 yards in the victory.

Despite having two weeks to prepare for this one, the Roadrunners (2-7, 1-4) managed only a fourth-quarter touchdown to narrowly avoid being shut out for the second straight game. UTSA finished with only 257 yard of total offense, as starting quarterback Tucker Carter was benched in favor of Austin Robinson after completing only 9-of-16 passes for 57 yards.

Rice began the day with a 13-play, 80-yard drive, which Jackson capped with a nine-yard touchdown scamper.

The Owls put together a 14-play, 71-yard drive early in the second quarter, although that one ended with a 37-yard field goal by James Farrimond to make it a 10-0 game.

Rice stretched its lead to 17-0 late in the third quarter on an eight-yard scoring strike from Jackson to Mario Hull.

UTSA finally got on the scoreboard at the 9:36 mark of the final frame, when Robinson found Kenny Bias for a 24-yard touchdown pass to trim the margin to 10. However, the Roadrunners' final two drives resulted in a punt and a lost fumble.

UTSA converted only 3-of-11 third-downs for the game and came away scoreless on two red-zone opportunities.
