Louisiana Tech (home) vs. UTSA (away)

Current Records: Louisiana Tech 8-3; UTSA 4-7

What to Know

After two games on the road, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs are heading back home. Louisiana Tech and the UTSA Roadrunners will face off in a Conference USA battle at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Joe Aillet Stadium. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

Louisiana Tech didn't finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 20-14 to the UAB Blazers last week. No one had a big game offensively for the Bulldogs, but they got scores from WR Isaiah Graham and WR Smoke Harris.

Meanwhile, UTSA came up short against the Florida Atlantic Owls, falling 40-26. UTSA was down 33-11 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.

Louisiana Tech is the favorite in this one, with an expected 20.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (5-2), so they might be worth a quick bet.

The Bulldogs took their game against the Roadrunners when the two teams last met in last October by a conclusive 31-3 score. Will the Bulldogs repeat their success, or do the Roadrunners have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
