Texas-Rice sell out Reliant Stadium

Planning on strolling right up to Reliant Stadium in Houston and waltzing in to see Texas and Rice?  Better warm up the couch.

The game will be Garrett Gilbert's first career start, and first time on the field since being called on to replace the injured Colt McCoy in the national championship game against Alabama.  Outside of the title game, the sophomore signal caller has never had more than six attempts in a game.  This is will be the first chance Longhorn fans have to see how Gilbert will stack up to his quarterback predecessors.

The in-state showdown between the Longhorns and Owls in the home of the Houston Texans was declared a sellout earlier today.  Reliant Stadium seats 71,500 for football games and for those curious; the retractable roof will be closed.  Pretty impressive for what figures to be far from a nail-biter.

You never know though, would have been hard to predict what's happening in Gainesville right now
