The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs lost their 2nd straight game and dropped to 2-4 on the season after being defeated by the UTEP Miners, 19-3, this past Saturday. Louisiana Tech had no answers on the offensive end for the tough UTEP defense and could not fight back after going into halftime trailing by a 16-3 margin.

The Roadrunners are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 road games. The Bulldogs are 3-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 October games.

UTSA has a great season which now has the Roadrunners ranked in the top-25, however, I’m seeing a let down in this game against a Bulldogs team that his better than what we saw last week against UTEP. Louisiana Tech has been solid offensively this season, led by their passing attack that should have success against UTSA’s 91st ranked passing defense, and as UTSA generally is not as strong on the road as they are at home, I think the Bulldogs will keep this one close and at worst, cover with the points. Good Luck!
