The Roadrunners have won 3 of their last 4 – only losing that fourth game in 5 overtimes to UTEP – and will have to slow down a Blue Raider team that is equally hot.
After two straight close wins on the road, the Blue Raiders will be happy to return home and in hopes of building off their confidence.
An inconsistent passing offense is a big reason for the Roadrunners 4-4 record but their defense has been able to hold up and led them to 3 wins in 4 games.
While the 52 points they gave up in the 5 overtimes is skewed by the extra possessions, the Roadrunners have allowed an average of 20 points per game in their 3 recent victories.
The defense will certainly be put to the test in this game as the Blue Raiders are averaging 40.5 points per game this season.
The Roadrunners will need quarterback Dalton Sturm to continue playing well – who has thrown 8 touchdowns to just one interception in the last four games.
They will need him to stretch the field a little bit though as he threw for 274 in their opener but hasn’t surpassed 229 since and has failed to reach 200 yards in 4 of their 8 games.
If he is able to do that, UTSA would be able to help their run game even more so who already averages 4.3 yards per carry.
Jalen Rhodes is leading the way there with 599 yards and 7 touchdowns at 5.9 yards per carry. While Rhodes should be able to continue running well against an below average Blue Raider defense.
But, to keep up with Brent Stockstill and the Middle Tennessee offense they will need to be able to throw the ball. The run game simply won’t be enough.
Regardless, expect Rhodes to get a heavy workload as the Roadrunners will try to control the tempo.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
Stockstill and running back I’Tavious Mathers continue to show week after week that they are one of the most dangerous QB-RB duos in the FBS.
Stockstill has thrown for 26 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions this season. Mathers has rushed for 1066 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.
The numbers alone show how good they are but watching them pick apart opposing defenses makes it even more evident.
Thankfully for the Blue Raiders, they have been doing that because it covers for the below average Middle Tennessee State defense.
The defense is allowing 30 points per game and have allowed 124 points in the last three. While the Roadrunners are not very explosive, they have guys that could beat the Blue Raiders.
Stockstill and Mathers will likely need to bail out the defense again but shouldn’t have too much of a problem with that.
The Blue Raiders are rolling right now and their offense should continue to perform as one of the best in the nation.

Free Week 10 NCAA Football Prediction
64.5 is low total for any game that involves the Blue Raiders.
They have the ability to go after a majority of that total on their own. I expect them to do that and their defense will certainly allow Rhodes and Sturm to put some points up on the board.
