UNLV @ UTSA
Current Records: UNLV 0-4; UTSA 4-0
What to Know
The UTSA Roadrunners will look to defend their home turf on Saturday against the UNLV Rebels at 6 p.m. ET. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, the Roadrunners have to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.
UTSA came out on top in a nail-biter against the Memphis Tigers last week, sneaking past 31-28. UTSA was down 21 to nothing at the end of the first quarter, but the squad rallied to mount a comeback.
Meanwhile, UNLV came up short against the Fresno State Bulldogs last Friday, falling 38-30. UNLV was up 14 to nothing at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. A silver lining for them was the play of RB Charles Williams, who rushed for one TD and 102 yards on 19 carries in addition to catching three passes for 96 yards. Williams hadn’t helped his team much against the Iowa State Cyclones two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
This next contest looks promising for UTSA, who are favored by a full 21 points. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
The Roadrunners’ win brought them up to 4-0 while the Rebels’ defeat pulled them down to a reciprocal 0-4. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: UTSA is 159th worst in the nation in passing touchdowns allowed, with six on the season. UNLV has experienced some passing struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 246th most passing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 13 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
