Rice Owls Want to Know: Can You Love Them Again?

The Rice Owls are preparing for the 2014 Conference USA Championships in Atlanta, Georgia next weekend, and volunteer assistant Mike Peron made a video with some highlights from the team’s regular season. In true intelligentsia fashion, Rice has eschewed mainstream American pop in exchange for the #1 Brit single Love Me Again by John Newman.

The lyrics of the song are perhaps a plea to their fans to “Love them Again,” given that most of the video was shot at the pool of cross-town rivals the University of Houston. Kidding!

Conference-USA Women

  • Dates: Wednesday, February 26th – Saturday, March 1st
  • Location: Georgia Tech Aquatic Center, Atlanta, GA (Eastern Time Zone)
  • Defending Champion: Rice (results)
  • Live Results:
  • Live Video (If available):
  • Championship Central: Here.

Quick Hit: The new-look C-USA returns defending champions Rice, along with their stud breaststroker Rachel Moody, who has really broken out as a junior. SMU and Houston are gone to the AAC, but the conference is now up to 9 teams, including East Carolina, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Marshall, North Texas, Old Dominion, Tulane and Western Kentucky.

Editor’s note: Western Kentucky has jumped ahead of the other sports by a season into Conference USA as an affiliate member since the Sun Belt dropped women’s swimming.
