UTSA Roadrunners at UTEP Miners Open Comment Thread

Ivan Pierre Aguirre-USA TODAY Sp

Its El Paso v San Antonio tonight in the Sun Bowl as UTSA and UTEP meet in the inaugural battle of Texas schools.

For the first time in each school's history, UTSA and UTEP will face off on the gridiron for what a lot of people who follow the two schools think will be a fierce, intense conference and in-state rivalry.

Like the Miners first two opponents, the Runners will utilize the read option, and rely on the QB to make plays in the running game. Staying disciplined on their assignments and tackling will once again be points of high emphasis this week to contain it, and not giving up big plays to get them going on offense.

This will be a close game, and its going to come down to who either has the ball last, or which defense can make the play to win it or give it back to offense to finish for the win. But I think Jameill Showers is better than Eric Soza and the Miners will make more plays on offense when it counts.

FINAL PREDICTION: UTEP 35 UTSA 34
