UTSA Has Edge Over Tulane with Healthy Harris, Absent Receivers
Though defense is often key in championship play, a balanced attack is desirable. Tulane must focus on the passing game as UTSA ranks 40th in run defense. A potential problem for Tulane is that two of their top three receivers are injured and may not be able to play, meaning the Green Wave might be unable to employ a well rounded offense. The positive outcome for UTSA is the health of Harris, who will be able to play as both a passer and runner with the potential to make an impact in the matchup.
