Righteous halftime show, Owl Marching Band.

The Rice marching band formed a “IX” on Friday night at halftime of a 38-10 loss to visiting Baylor in an apparent reference to the sexual assault scandal that has rocked the Waco, Texas, school this year.

The Marching Owl Band, which has long been known for its parody-driven performances, took the formation in front of the Baylor fan section, in an apparent reference to Title IX.

Too bad Art Briles didn’t stick around to watch.

    Do they play Penn State?

    In that spirit, a playlist request for the Redcoats:

    vs. AU – – The Second Time Around
    vs. TN – – Stand By Your Man
    vs. FLA – Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go (it just fits)
    vs. AL – Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

    Cause sexual assault is a laugh riot to some folks.

  4. In addition to the IX, they had a star formation on the field.

    No one in the Baylor administration understood the reference, sadly.
