The game-winning play capped a stellar night for Clement, who
had a hand in all five Rice touchdowns. Clement completed 21 of 33
passes for 191 yards and three touchdowns, and the sophomore also
rushed 17 times for 141 yards and two scores.
UAB (3-4, 2-1 Conference USA) appeared to have the game won
after linebacker Kris Guyton intercepted a pass with 23 seconds
remaining. But Guyton fumbled while making the return and Rice's
Lute Barber recovered at the Blazers' 19 with 18 seconds left.
Clement ran for nine yards on first down before Rice (2-5, 1-2)
called a time-out to set up Clement's third touchdown pass to
Dillard, who had nine catches for 111 yards.
Williams' third touchdown pass was a 3-yard toss to LaDarrius
Stanley that pulled the Blazers within 28-26 on the first play of
the fourth quarter.
Dillard's second touchdown catch established him as Rice's
all-time single season touchdown reception leader with 10.
Rice sophomore defensive end Dietrich Davis was taken off the
field on a stretcher late in the third quarter and taken to
Houston's Memorial-Hermann Hospital. Rice spokesman Chuck Pool said
Davis was "OK" after the game but would stay in the hospital
overnight for observation.
