If you couldn’t handle one day without football this weekend, the NCAA scheduling czars have handed you a gift — Wake Forest at Rice and Marshall at Boise State on Friday night.

Wake and Rice pits two polar opposite offenses against each other, while Marshall at Boise is one of the most intriguing non-conference Group of Five games this weekend.

Tortoise vs. Hare

You may not associate Wake Forest’s offense with pace, but this team flies.

Wake ranked third in plays per minute last season behind only UCF and Houston, and ran 105 (!) plays against Utah State last week. Quarterback Jamie Newman looked awesome, averaging 8.5 yards per attempt with three scores.

Rice on the other hand is playing a different sport.
