The Cowboys are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Conference USA, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The UT San Antonio Roadrunners are off to a brutal start, which includes a loss to St. Edward's, and they're currently one of the worst defensive teams in the country two games into the season. The Oklahoma State Cowboys had offensive issues in their opener, but that should change at home, and even with those struggles, they still had chances to win. Also, OK State has covered 12 of its last 19 games when a double-digit favorite. I'll lay the points with the Cowboys at home, as UTSA has been awful up to this point.
