UTSA vs San Diego State Prediction

It is time for another gameplay, and I am excited to get into this matchup as the UTSA Road Runners will battle the San Diego State Aztecs in the Frisco Bowl from Frisco, Texas. These teams both had outstanding seasons and should be proud of what they accomplished this season, setting some school records and milestones on the way.

UTSA will be without their star running back, Sincere Mccormick, who will be preparing for the NFL draft, so they will look to other options in the rushing game. The signal-caller for the roadrunners has been Frank Harris, a Texas native who has had an outstanding season throwing for just north of 2,900 yards while throwing for twenty-five touchdowns and just five interceptions.

The Aztecs play a different brand of football as they rely heavily on their defense and look to run the football often and control the tempo. Lucas Johnson led the way for the Aztecs at the quarterback spot this season, throwing for over one thousand yards and nine touchdowns on the campaign. Greg Bell was the bruiser for the Aztecs this season nearing a one thousand yard season finishing with 999 on the year while getting into the end zone eight times to lead the rushing attack. These teams both exceeded pre-season expectations, and this game will mean a whole lot to both programs tonight to go home with some hardware and a bowl win.

The pick I am going with here will be to back the dog in the UTSA Roadrunners. I love the value here in a game I see fairly evenly matched tonight. The advantage of this game for UTSA will also be that this game is in Texas, so it should feel more like a home football game for UTSA, while the travel is more difficult from the west coast for San Diego State. UTSA is the much more explosive team that will look to create more in a game like this that can be the difference between winning and losing a game.

The best-skill position player is on the sidelines of the Roadrunners in the form of Zakhari Franklin. The junior wideout had a near thousand-yard season while getting into the end zone twelve times on the campaign. The defensive battle will be good. However, I think that this matchup favors the UTSA defense, who can shut down the rushing game for the Aztecs. In these types of games, it is always best to trust the team with the points and too many signs pointing to UTSA for me in the Frisco Bowl tonight. I am taking the dog here today, and we will cash in another dog!
