1. UTEP WIN TOTAL PREDICTION: WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN
There’s still a whole lot of work to do.
There are good parts in the offensive backfield, but the receiving corps needs a whole lot of work and the offensive line still has to prove it can keep someone from hanging out in the backfield.
The defense is welcoming in a slew of new parts from the recruiting class and the JUCO ranks, but it’s still not going to be a rock to rely on week-in-and-week-out. However, this will be a stronger UTEP team and should finally start to turn this thing around.
Set The Regular Season Win Total At … 3
The Miners will be 1-0 after beating Houston Baptist, but it’ll be a fight to come up with too many more wins. Considering the program has won one game in the last two years, even a three-win season will look great.
With home games against UTSA, Charlotte and Rice, and a date up the road against New Mexico State, the Miners should be able to come up with at least two more victories. If the line play is better, flirting with five wins isn’t out of the question.
