This should be an interesting game considering neither side has played in nearly a week. Potential rust could be an issue in this game. With that said, the Loyola Marymount Lions are off to a ridiculous start on the offensive end, and that's why I lean toward them in this near pick em spot. Loyola Marymount is a top-20 scoring team through 3 games and the depth is impressive. SFA doesn't have as many guys who can take over for stretches. Give me Loyola Marymount for a third victory.
