No. 7 Texas A&M host Rice

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin knows Rice coach David Bailiff well.
He doesn't expect his Owls to be wary when they face the seventh-ranked Aggies on Saturday in front of more than 100,000 fans.
Sumlin says "There's nothing in that program that says they're going to be the least bit intimidated to come in and play us."
Sumlin considers Bailiff a close friend, saying they lived in the same neighborhood when he coached Houston.
But there won't be much time for niceties on Saturday when the Aggies look to improve to 3-0 for the first time under Sumlin. They're off to a great start thanks in large part to the play of quarterback Kenny Hill.
