I’m leaning towards Utah Valley here. Not a game I’m rushing to bet, but Tarleton was lucky to escape UTRGV and move on and I don’t know if they’re going to be able to replicate that against the top team in the WAC. Utah Valley was strong down the stretch and I look for them to pick up right where they left off. Give me the Wolverines laying the points.
