Cal Baptist vs. Utah Valley Prediction

I’m on Utah Valley here. I just don’t think I trust Cal Baptist to break down a Utah Valley defense that’s been one of the best in the WAC up to this point in the year. The Wolverines are the better team in my eyes and I think they do enough to secure the win and cover here when all is said and done to move on.
