Rice kicker Chris Boswell showed off his place kicking skills last week, connecting on all three field goal attempts in the Owls win against Kansas, including the go-ahead score from 56 yards out. After Rice trimmed Houston's lead to 31-26 in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, Boswell showed off a fancy new move for the onside kick.

If you watch closely, Boswell plants one foot then wraps his kicking leg around it to make contact in the "wrong" direction. The Houston hands team was unprepared for the ball, and the Owls were able to recover.
