On Nov. 17, the Roadrunners routed USF 49-21 at home. Frank Harris was the star of the show, recording 411 passing yards (31 of 46), 112 rushing yards and five total touchdowns. He set a school record for total offense (523 yards) and his 523 total yards was the second-highest FBS total this season. With 76 receptions, 966 yards and nine touchdowns, Joshua Cephas has been Harris' top receiving target. UTSA ranks 36th in total offense (429.1ypg), 48th in passing (254.5ypg) and 29th in points scored (33.09ppg).

Tulane has a strong defensive record and holds an impressive 10-1 (4-7 ATS) record overall. Michael Pratt holds the school record for passing yardage, while Tulane's defense has recorded an average of 19.60 points per game while ranking 25th overall. However, the passing defense ranks 110th, allowing 246.2 yards per game, leaving its offensive performance quite average. UTSA has had poor results in its last 3 matchups against Tulane and is yet to win.

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.
