UTSA vs FIU Game Preview

Why UTSA Will Win

As long as the Roadrunners don’t have any turnover issues they should have this without much of a problem.

The offense is balanced when it has to be, Frank Harris and the passing game are rock solid, and it shouldn’t take too many points to put this away against a FIU offense that doesn’t put points on the board.

The Panthers are able to throw it a bit, but they don’t keep the chains moving, there’s absolutely no downfield passing, and they aren’t able to take advantage of opportunities when they get them.

Why FIU Will Win

UTSA can be a little loose at times.

It turned the ball over five times in a two-game span, there was a penalty problem early in the year, and FIU will attack up front to at least apply a little pressure.

For all of the good things the Roadrunners do, they don’t do much to come up with third down stops and it’s possible to throw on this group – FIU has to keep pressing with the midrange throws.

Granted, playing New Mexico State and UConn isn’t a big deal, but the Panther secondary held up well.

What’s Going To Happen

UTSA will methodically get the offense going right away with two first quarter touchdown drives, and everything will fall into place from there.

FIU will get over 200 yards through the air, but it’ll stall on too many early drives and will buckle against the run as the game goes on.

UTSA’s defense will give up a few points in the second half, but it’ll have this well in hand.
