ANDREW’S FREE PICK 

I’m going to try Texas Southern here. The Tigers seem to have found their groove over this three-game win streak. They’ve also scored pretty well lately with 67 or more points in five straight outings. As for Prairie View, they’re struggling right now on a 1-4 stretch. The Panthers haven’t cracked 68 points in their last 10 games, either. If Texas Southern can get a good offensive performance here they should be fine.
