IUPUI hasn't handeled playing on the road very well, which includes a 12-point loss to the Michigan Wolverines. Meanwhile, the Marquette Golden Eagles showed just how good of a team they can be after hanging around with Michigan and outplaying Pittsburgh for 30 minutes. This is a step down in comp for the Golden Eagles and playing at home will help. I'll side with Marquette to win this game in a blowout.
