The UTEP Miners stay following a win over Houston Baptist this week in the Country of Texas.
A team that have won the past two years, two games, A triumph over Houston Baptist, isn’t the finest of wins. It’s UTEP’s first win at home since November of 2016, so that was reason to watch to the Miners. Additionally, it gave soccer fans in El Paso something to take their minds.
UTEP were headed by Treyvon Hughes on the ground. He also romped for 144 yards and two touchdowns around 6.3 yards per carry. The Houston Baptist handling wouldn’t have been able to slow down a crime and was atrocious, after viewing the tape. But, credit UTEP for getting the monkey off their back, having not won a home game since 2016. To get the triumph, UTEP had to prevent a late push by Houston Baptist profound in Miners’ land. Until UTEP got a strip sack and turnover in the 19, the zone was being flirted with all by HBU.
The positive there’s that UTEP acquired the triumph. On the flip side, that could be the only game which the Miners win this year. They’re going to be underdogs in the majority of their games. They don’t have the hardest schedule, therefore it is unlikely, but possible. At a minimum, UTEP should beat Rice at the final game of their season in El Paso.
Texas Tech got off to a start against Montana State. They had an FCS competition in Week 1, but were able to throttle them. Among the most underrated quarterback, I think you’re likely to find Alan Bowman, in 2019, led all passers with 436 passing metres in Week 1. He might have had , but the Red Raiders gashed Armand Shyne as well with Montana State on the floor. Shyne rushed for 125 yards on a whopping 11.4 yards per carry. There wasn’t enough time for the ball. Head below to our free UTEP vs. Texas Tech pick.

Pundits in substantial part because of Kliff Kingsbury’s departure are passing texas Tech. Bear in mind, Kingsbury go to the NFL and did not resign from Texas Tech, he was fired from his job as head coach. That’s often lost in translation. Kingsbury had a phobia to playing defense, and his firing was a effect of not fielding a defense that is competitive.
Matt Wells, who was from accepting Utah State from a nobody to a name that is familiar responsible, will highlight defense. Utah State were known for their underrated defense, and he is likely going to turn Texas Tech to a defense that was respectable as well.
A Enormous setback to Kingsbury using the Red Raiders last year was the injury to Alan Bowman. After casting darts as a 11, bowman suffered a collapsed lung. After he exited, Bowman had 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on 69.4% completions in his very first season of college. The QB situation was rocky for Texas Tech. Jett Duffey, who is currently third on the depth chart, began games with mixed outcomes for the Red Raiders.
Wells has a healthy Bowman and he isn’t changing anything up with the scheme. The Red Raiders are moving as ever, becoming off as many plays as they can possibly run. They conducted a staggering 95 plays against Montana State. Bowman is going to have the UTEP defense on border, as the Miners must go from 0 to 100 against one of the worst teams in the FCS to one of the fastest crimes in the FBS.
UTEP’s offense is going to be predictable with the alternative game involving runner Treyvon Hughes and QB Brandon Jones. Jones is not much of a passer. He fought a FCS defense converting just half of his moves on 10-of-20 departure. He rushed for 33 yards for a touchdown on the ground, but he is not a burner either. Hughes is the man the Tech defense must be aware of the majority of all.
Kingsbury did not leave the cupboard empty for Wells defensively. Their strength is combined with lineup with all Broderick Washington. He is fast and strong and is going to overwhelm the UTEP offensive point here. Expect a lot of plays to go backward for the Miners in this one.
Texas Tech may not have a defense to contend with an offense like Oklahoma however, but this should be easy for them. The choice shouldn’t fool the Red Raiders here. They could name the score in this game, if Texas Tech wish to. UTEP are a base 5 group in the FBS that aren’t by any means prepared to contend with Texas Tech. 52-14 looks.
