UTSA (2-0) vs Middle Tennessee (1-1) Game Preview

Why Middle Tennessee Will Win

The Blue Raiders were able to hang around a bit with Virginia Tech in a 35-14 loss.

The running game didn’t do much, but former NC State QB Bailey Hockman was able to throw for over 200 yards and the defense kept the game in check for a half.

The offense isn’t making big mistakes – just one turnover so far – and the passing game is just efficient enough to bother a UTSA secondary that had problems late against Illinois and hasn’t been pressed too hard.

Why UTSA Will Win

The Roadrunners keep on rolling.

They pulled off a thriller or a win over Illinois in the opener, and then ripped through Lamar with a 54-0 win thanks to a razor-sharp passing game.

It’s all working. They’re moving the chains without a problem, the offense is scoring whenever it gets a chance, and they’re not making a whole slew of mistakes.

Middle Tennessee isn’t doing anything to keep defenses out of the backfield and the offense hasn’t been moving like it needs to against a team this solid.

What’s Going To Happen

UTSA is playing well, and now it gets to take a first step in the Conference USA race at home with a good offensive balance and a nice day from the defense.

The Roadrunner defensive front will get into the backfield enough to come up with the stops needed to pull ahead in the second half.
