UTEP Miners (3-1) vs Southern Miss Golden Eagles (1-3)
Saturday, October 17, 2020 at 7:30 pm
*4 Star Play Under* The UTEP Miners play at the third slowest pace of any team in the nation. UTEP wants to run the football and control the pace of the game. The Miners have played a bunch of low scoring games so far this year. The only high scoring game was a 59-3 loss against Texas. Southern Miss isn't a bad offense, but they play slowly and they don't have nearly the same kind of firepower that Texas has offensively.
Southern Miss is slower than average in tempo as well. The Golden Eagles have had some high scoring games this year, but they have played a lot of good offenses. UTEP isn't a good offense at all.
UTEP lost 21-17 last week against LA Tech. UTEP averaged only 4.0 yards per play on offense. LA Tech averaged only 3.0 yards per play. UTEP scored one of their touchdowns on a kick return TD.
UTEP has seen four of their five games so far this season finish at 38 points or less.
The last six meetings between these two teams have all finished at 49 points or less. I think we see another game come in below the total.
Take the under here.
