UTSA at FIU - 10/14/22 College Football Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The UTSA Roadrunners and FIU Panthers face off on Friday in a college football showdown at FIU Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2018 it was FIU that was able to secure the 45-7 victory. 

UTSA comes into this game with a 4-2 record overall, and they are coming off another big victory in their last game. UTSA gave up 14 points in the 4th quarter to Western Kentucky, but they scored seven points, and still held on for the 31-28 victory. Under center for UTSA is Frank Harris and in the last game, he completed 24 of his 35 passes for 273 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. The defense hasn’t been great this season, but the offense has been good, averaging 37.3 points per game, which is 27th in the league. 

On the other side of this matchup is the FIU Panthers, who sit with a 2-3 record overall, but they are coming off a terrible loss in their last game. FIU only managed 12 points against UCONN while the defense gave up 33 points, and it was a blowout loss. Under center for FIU is Grayson James, and he completed 28 of his 43 passes for 256 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. The play under center has been an issue all season. FIU is averaging 16.6 points, while their defense is giving up 38.2 points per game. 

UTSA is 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 games on fieldturf. FIU is 7-19 in their last 26 conference games. The over is 8-0 in UTSA’s last eight road games. The under is 4-0 in FIU’s last four games in October. The over is 17-8 in UTSA’s last 25 games overall.

FIU only managed 12 points against UConn, and it’s not going to get any easier in this game, even against a bad defense. UTSA is going to score their points, and I just don’t think that FIU has the offense to even keep this anywhere close. Frank Harris will have another big game, and UTSA get the job done. Back UTSA to cover this spread.
