Why UTSA can cover

The Roadrunners are looking for a proper send off for veterans such as receiver Joshua Cephus, who has been with the program since 2019, and has more than 3,500 receiving yards.

The Roadrunners have a stout defense that is able to limit explosive plays. They finished the season ranked fifth in the American Conference in points allowed (24.7) and total defense (369.3). UTSA comes into this game in better overall form, winning seven of its last eight games and covering five times during that span. See which team to pick here.

Why Marshall cover

Marshall allowed 376.1 yards per game, which ranked fourth in the Sun Belt Conference. Senior linebacker Eli Neal is an instinctive defender on the second level. Neal pursues ball carriers extremely well and has a relentless motor. The Tennessee native leads the team in total tackles (85) with two sacks. He's logged at least seven tackles in nine games this season.

Senior defensive lineman Sam Burton has been creating pressure off the edge. The Florida native secured a team-high 6.5 sacks and 38 total tackles. He logged 3.5 sacks over the last three weeks of the campaign. Sophomore defensive back Dyoni Hill provides the Thundering Herd with an alert defender on the backend. Hill had a team-high 10 deflections and 52 total tackles. See which team to pick here.
