Senior Cade Carney rushed 25 times for 105 yards and Newman added 36 yards on the ground, as the Demon Deacons finished with 579 yards of total offense. Freshman safety Trey Rucker recorded five tackles and intercepted a pass in the end zone.

ABOUT RICE (0-1): Ellerbe, who missed most of last season with a knee injury, rushed nine times for 103 yards - 54 coming on his touchdown - and fifth-year senior Aston Walter added 72 yards on 18 carries as the Owls averaged six yards per carry. Redshirt freshman quarterback Wiley Green only attempted 14 passes, completing seven for 62 yards. Sophomore linebacker Antonio Montero recorded a career-best 11 tackles in the loss.
