Texas A&M-Commerce vs. Northwestern State Prediction

I’m on the under here. These two teams met twice in the regular season, one meeting saw 127 points and the other 160+, but that second meeting needed triple overtime and at the end of regulation we were tied at 57. I think this is another one of those low-scoring duels, so give me the under here.
