Texas Southern has played every game on the road this season and has done a solid job of holding its own. However, playing James Madison, Rice and Delware State isn't exactly the same as playing Arizona in Tucson. The Arizona Wildcats should be able to get the job done here by a big margin as the talent gap is quite large.
