UTSA @ Memphis
Current Records: UTSA 3-0; Memphis 3-0
What to Know
After a two-game homestand, the UTSA Roadrunners will be on the road. They will take on the Memphis Tigers at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Liberty Bowl Memorial. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
The Roadrunners picked up a 27-13 victory over the Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders last week.
Meanwhile, Memphis sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 31-29 win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs last week. WR Calvin Austin III was the offensive standout of the contest for Memphis, catching nine passes for two TDs and 105 yards.
UTSA is expected to lose this next one by 3. Those interested in the spread don’t face an easy decision since they are 2-0 ATS and Memphis 2-0.
The wins brought UTSA up to 3-0 and the Tigers to 3-0. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Roadrunners are 158th worst in the nation in passing touchdowns allowed, with five on the season. Memphis has experienced some passing struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the matchup with the 248th most passing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 400 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
