The UTSA Roadrunners and the Marshall Thundering Herd meet in the Frisco Bowl in college football action from Toyota Stadium on Tuesday night. Who hoists the Frisco Bowl trophy? Let’s dive in and find out with a UTSA vs. Marshall Prediction.

UTSA Team Preview

The UTSA Roadrunners booked their spot in the Frisco Bowl after finishing the year with an 8-4 record. Frank Harris has thrown for 2,506 yards, 18 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 64.9% passing while Kevorian Barnes has a team-high 698 rushing yards with 6 TDs and Robert Henry has 551 rushing yards with 9 TDs. Rocko Griffin also has 440 rushing yards and 5 scores this season.

Marshall Team Preview

The Marshall Thundering Herd come into their bowl game at 6-6 on the year. Cam Fancher has thrown for 2,162 yards, 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on 65.6% passing while Rasheen Ali has a team-high 1,043 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. DeMarcus Harris has a team-high 396 receiving yards while Caleb Coombs has a team-high 39 receptions for 310 receiving yards. Another six Marshall receivers have 200+ receiving yards and another three have 100+ receiving yards as well on the year. Eli Neal has a team-high 85 total tackles while Sam Burton has a team-high 6.5 sacks. Owen Porter/Elijah has a team-high 5 sacks this season. Just a worthwhile note, Cam Fancher and Caleb Coombs are both in the transfer portal and we have not received word whether or not star rb Rasheen Ali will play or not. I think it’s UTSA all day here and if Ali doesn’t suit up, that’ll be big for Marshall.

Marshall Thundering Herd Team Facts

  • Marshall has won five of its last six games against non-conference opponents.
  • The favorite has covered the spread in eight of Marshall’s last nine Bowl games.
  • Marshall has lost the first half in three of its last four games against non-conference opponents at neutral venues.
  • Each of Marshall’s last seven games against opponents from the American Athletic Conference have gone OVER the total points line.

UTSA vs. Marshall Prediction

I’m on UTSA here. Even if those guys play for Marshall, which I’m 99% sure they won’t, I don’t see how Marshall keeps this game remotely close. UTSA came on strong over the final month of the season and I think that carries into the bowl game here. Give me UTSA.
