Asher O’Hara has thrown for 155 yards and 3 interceptions on 57.6$ passing while also leading the Blue Raiders on the ground with 63 rushing yards and a ground touchdown this season. Jarrin Pierce leads Middle Tennessee’s receiving group with 15 catches for 114 yards while Jaylin Lane has a receiving TD for the Blue Raiders this year.

The UTSA Roadrunners will be out to build on their 2-0 record after a 24-10 win over Stephen F. Austin in their last game. Frank Harris has thrown for 438 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception on 66.7% passing while also rushing for 155 yards and 5 touchdowns this season.

Middle Tennessee is 2-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 conference games, and 2-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record. UTSA is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 4-1 against the spread as a favorite, and 1-5 against the spread following a win.
Middle Tennessee has looked horrible and they should look just as bad here, I have to go with UTSA and lay the points.
