Grand Canyon vs. Tarleton State Prediction

I’m on Tarleton State here. The Antelopes are the class of the WAC, but Tarleton took the loss when these two teams met in the first meeting and the Texans need to win out to have any shot at the WAC regular season title. Grand Canyon’s played in their fair share of close games as well, and this could be another one to add to the ledger. I think if Grand Canyon wins this one, it could come down to a single possession. Should be a fun one, but one I’ll want to have the points in my back pocket.
