UTSA vs Lousiana Tech Game Preview
Why UTSA Will Win
What are the future American Athletic Conference UTSA Roadrunners doing that’s so right?
The lines have been terrific.

Why Louisiana Tech Will Win
The Bulldogs are great at staying in games on takeaways.

What’s Going To Happen
UTSA doesn’t have a turnover problem. It only lost the turnover battle once this year, and even then it was just a -1 in a win over Middle Tennessee.
