Why Middle Tennessee Will Win
The UTSA defense hasn’t been any sort of a rock against the run, and Middle Tennessee has to get something going on the ground.
The Blue Raiders want to move the ball with a quick passing attack and good tempo, but nothing has worked so far with just 162 yards on the ground in the first two games and no consistency through the air.
UTSA got picked apart by Texas State’s Tyler Vitt for 346 yards and four scores in the 51-48 loss a few weeks ago, and struggled against the SFA air attack last week. If Middle Tennessee was ever going to jump-start its season, this would be the week.
Why UTSA Will Win
The Middle Tennessee lines have been miserable.
Army running for 340 yards and five touchdowns is one thing – that’s Army – but Troy was able to rip it up for 240 yards and three scores, too. UTSA’s Sincere McCormick has rushed for 295 yards and a score in two games, the Roadrunner ground attack is able to control games early on, and it should be able keep the Middle Tennessee offense off the field.
What’s Going To Happen
UTSA will generate a pass rush. Middle Tennessee hasn’t been able to find anything that consistently works offensively, and it’s going to get hit by a Roadrunner offense that might not be consistent, but will at least it’s working.
