Rice linebacker Cameron Nwosu will change his number this season to honor former Owl O.J. Brigance, who won a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2001 and is now the Ravens' senior adviser to player development. The Houston Chronicle reported that Nwosu will wear Brigance's No. 57, and his teammate, running back Turner Petersen, plans to wear No. 26 to honor former Rice All-American King Hill.
