Houston Cougars vs UTSA Roadrunners Predictions 9/3/2022

 

Last year, UTSA caught everyone off guard by winning 11 straight games to capture Conference USA’s West Division.

 

They lost to North Texas in the final game of the regular season before coming back to defeat Western Kentucky in the Conference USA championship.

 

To end the year on a negative note, San Diego State defeated them in the Frisco Bowl. Eight offensive starters, including the quarterback, all 3 starting receivers, and four starting offensive linemen, are returning for UTSA this season.

 

When it came to passing offense last season, the Roadrunners finished 43rd out of 130 FBS teams, averaging 255.5 yards per game.

 

UTSA’s running offense, which averaged 183.5 yards per game, ranked 43rd. The Roadrunners had a strong offensive performance, ranking 11th in the FBS in scoring offense with an average of 36.9 points per game.

 

UTSA had a strong defense this past season, finishing 50th overall as they gave up an average of 24.6 points per game.

 

  • The Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Texas-San Antonio’s last 7 matches. 
  • Texas-San Antonio is 12-2 SU in their last 14 matches.

#24 Houston Cougars vs UTSA Roadrunners. The NCAAF pick for this game is the #24 Houston Cougars. Houston may not have wanted a tougher matchup for their season opener.

 

Last year, UTSA proved that they were no pushovers as they defeated Illinois in Champaign, defeating a Power Five team.

 

The Roadrunners will be a formidable offensive squad now that their primary quarterback and top three receivers are back. Houston won’t be intimidated, but the game was competitive the entire time.

 

Ultimately, expect Tune and the Cougars to prevail in a game that will be a tough test for Dana Holgorsen’s squad and will give them confidence going into their week two matchup against Texas Tech, who defeated them in the season opener in 2021.

 

The #24 Houston Cougars will win to a predicted score of 33-28.
