The UTSA Roadrunners got off on the right foot by defeating the Alabama State Hornets at home.
The Colorado State Rams got blitzed and overwhelmed by their in-state rival, Colorado Buffaloes, and will look to bounce back.
The UTSA Roadrunners beat the Alabama State Hornets by a score of 26-13. Junior quarterback Dalton Sturm was efficient going 20 of 25 for 274 yards. He threw two touchdowns and one interception.
UTSA spread the wealth around as no receiver caught more than three balls and a total of ten players recorded a reception. Sophomore halfback Jalen Rhodes was the primary back who carried the ball 16 times for almost five yards a pop and one touchdown.
The Roadrunners defense was solid enough as they held South Alabama to less than 4 yards per run and South Alabama was only able to generate 142 yards in the air.
UTSA had just about as good of a game as you could have, the only issue was the fact that they turned the ball over four times in this game. had they not turned the ball over they would have won by a bigger margin.
However, this is something that has been a problem for them over the past three years as their turnover margin has been in the negatives.
Keep an eye out for turnovers not only in this game, but for future Roadrunner games.
Colorado State Rams
On the other side, just about everything that could go wrong went wrong for the Colorado State Rams.
They were absolutely overwhelmed by Colorado’s new offensive philosophy.
The Buffaloes came out in a hurry up offense and blitzed out the Rams in a blowout win. Offensively it wasn’t much better for the Rams as they could only muster up seven points.
Junior quarterback Nick Stevens had a dreadful game as he only completed 30% of his passes and he threw two interceptions in the process.
The only real bright spot for the Rams was junior halfback Dalyn Dawkins who only carried the ball 14 times, but he made the most of it as he rushed for 88 yards.
Colorado State will look to rebound against a much less inferior team in the UTSA Roadrunners from a talent perspective. Colorado State was able to go on the road last year and defeat them.

Free Week 1 NCAA Football Prediction:
This is an interesting match up as UTSA looked good last week while Colorado State looked horrific. However, who they played makes a huge difference, so just how good are both teams?
We still need more information to say exactly, but in situations like this the truth, typically, is somewhere around the middle.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over 56
I think UTSA is a decent enough team, but they looked great against Alabama State. Colorado State looked horrific, but that was against a seemingly good team in Colorado who might not end up being floor mats in the Pac-12 South this year.
All in all, I don’t trust either team, but if I had to pick I would say UTSA covers, but loses. However, I believe the safe bet is the over 56 gets eclipsed.
