The UTSA Roadrunners go on the road to take the field with the Old Dominion Monarchs.

The Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners were given little chance of upsetting  Arizona State as a 22 point home dog but ASU needed a 17-0 4th quarter to win 32-28. Arizona State held a 469-322 edge in real estate but lost the turnover battle 3-0. The problem for UTSA was no balance with the majority of their production coming through the air. Roadrunners quarterback Dalton Sturm kept his team in the game with some dual threat action. Sturm ran for 82 yards on 15 carries including a 34 yard scoring run while throwing for 229 yards and three touchdowns on 19-37 with receiver of choice Jarveon Williams catching five passes  for 81 yards.

The Old Dominion Monarchs dropped to 1-2 in the early going thanks to a 49-22 defeat at North Carolina State as a 24 point road dog. The pass heavy Wolfpack rolled up a 470-321 edge in yards with ODU managing 15 first downs. The Monarchs needed a huge day on the ground to keep the NC State offense off the field but Jeremy Cox with 91 yards and a touchdown was the only runner of significance. Old Dominion quarterback David Washington had some success in the air, completing 16-26 for 200 yards and a pair of scores with Zach Pascal recording eight receptions for 104 yards and both touchdowns.. 

The Roadrunners are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game while the under is 5-1 in Roadrunners last 6 games following a ATS win. The Monarchs are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and the over is 4-0-1 in Monarchs last 5 games following a ATS loss while the Monarchs are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. I think the key here is Sturm getting some help…

Pick:
UTSA +4

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
