Since 1971, the University of Houston Cougars and the Rice University Owls have squared off in a gridiron clash for the right to call themselves Houston's premier college football squad. This annual contest determines who gets to march back to campus with the Bayou Bucket, a gilded chalice that the winning team can display proudly for one year or use to play the hat game. The Cougars, last year’s winners, take the field under the leadership of new starting quarterback David Piland and running back Charles Sims. Piland was recently named Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week after a 580-yard, six-touchdown performance against Louisiana Tech, and Sims is following up an impressive 2011, in which he averaged 7.5 yards per carry, racking up nine touchdowns and a team-high 821 yards rushing. Rice University counters with junior quarterback Taylor McHargue and junior running back Charles Ross, both of whom have the in-game experience to thrive during high-pressure games or to buckle teammates' chinstraps mid-play.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
