The Rice University football team competes in NCAA Division I, and became members of Conference USA in 2005.

As members of the Southwest Conference, Rice developed an intense rivalry with SMU. The two teams went head-to-head from 1918-2012. SMU and Rice were among the four private schools competing in the conference, and were the smallest private schools of the old Southwest Conference, adding to their contention.
Another rivalry that developed during Rice's early days in the Southwest Conference includes same-state rivals, the Texas Longhorns. Despite the disbanding of the Southwest Conference, the two still faceoff, fueling their longtime rivalry, and their cross-town rivalry with Houston is separated by mere miles.
The Rice University football team plays home games at Rice Stadium, built in 1950. The stadium even hosted the 1974 Super Bowl. During the 1954 Cotton Bowl Classic, Rice and the Alabama Crimson Tide took to the field, marking Rice player Richard Lee "Dickey" Maegle's 95 yard touchdown, awarded by referees after Alabama's Tommy Lewis jumped off the bench, tackling Maegle. The famous football play led to a Cotton Bowl Classic record of totaling 265 yards.
In addition to Maegle's record-setting performance, several former Rice players went on to the NFL, including Rice Owls James Casey, Vance McDonald, Andrew Sendejo, Scott Solomon and Luke Willson.
