The Texas Southern Tigers have had serious issues defensively through 3 games and this will be their toughest opponent yet, which isn’t great news. The UTSA Roadrunners were a super hyped up team in terms of possible C-USA title, and they’re not exactly off to the start we expected. This kind of feels like a spot where UTSA can take out some frustration and start things over with a feel good beat down. Massive line and not something I’d touch personally. But if forced to pick, I’d expect the Roadrunners to run wild.
