The UTEP Miners and FIU Panthers face off on Wednesday in a college football showdown at FIU Stadium.

UTEP Has Been Disappointing 

UTEP was hoping to have a good season but so far this season but that hasn’t been the case. Coming into this game they sit with a 1-5 record overall and they are coming off a loss in the last game. The offense only scored 10 points against Louisiana Tech, and that led to the 14 point defeat. One big issue for UTEP is injuries, especially to the quarterback position and in the last game he completed 4 of his 11 passes for 48 yards. UTEP is averaging 16.2 points while their defense is giving up 28.2 points per game. Quarterbacks Gavin Hardson, Kevin Hurley, and Jake McNamara are all questionable for this game. 

FIU Looks to Bounce Back

FIU comes into this game with a 3-3 record overall but they are coming off a very disappointing loss. FIU only scored 17 points against New Mexico State and that led to the defeat. Keyone Jenkins completed 25 of his 32 passes for 250 yards, two interceptions and zero touchdowns. FIU is averaging 20.7 points while their defense is giving up 27 points per game. The offense is ranked 114tth while the defense is ranked 79th. Keyone Jenkins has thrown for 1,258 yards, five touchdowns, and six interceptions. 

Shane’s Free Pick

There are better games to bet and with all the questions surrounding the UTEP quarterback position and it really scares me. The biggest issue this season for UTEP has been the offense and they are going to really struggle again in this game. FIU’s offense is also averaging only 20.7 points per game and I expect they are going to really struggle to score again here. This game is going to be lower scoring and the under is going to cash.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
