UTEP (0-6) vs. Louisiana Tech (4-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
This hasn’t been the smoothest of seasons for Louisiana Tech, but this is the light and easy part of the slate. It has to keep taking advantage of it.
The offense hasn’t done what it’s supposed to, and the passing game isn’t quite there yet, but the Bulldogs are deep in the hunt for the Conference USA West crown thanks to a win over North Texas a few weeks ago.
Now, after stuffing UTSA 31-3 last week, there can’t be a hiccup against the still-reeling UTEP team in search of its first win since 2016.
The Miners pushed North Texas surprisingly hard a few weeks ago, and they’ve had two weeks off to prepare for this.
They’re more competitive than they were last season, but scoring is still a problem, turnovers are a huge issue, and the O just isn’t moving the chains enough.
The Bulldogs should be able to get out to a decent start and put it on cruise control from there. The defense will take care of the second half – the pass rush will dominate the UTEP offensive front that’s been getting crushed all season long.
