The FIU Panthers will try to end their 14-game Conference USA losing streak when they host the UTSA Roadrunners on Friday at FIU Stadium in Miami. The Panthers (2-3, 0-1 in C-USA), who are coming off a loss to UConn, have not won a conference game since beating Old Dominion in November 2019. Since then they have lost 14 straight C-USA games by an average margin of 26.6 points. Meanwhile the Roadrunners (4-2, 2-0), who knocked off Western Kentucky last week, have won 12 of their last 13 conference games. They share the lead in C-USA with North Texas

Kickoff is 8 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network. The Roadrunners are 34-point favorites in the latest UTSA vs. FIU odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total points scored is 62.5.

Why UTSA can cover

UTSA has one of the most prolific offenses in the country. Led by dual-threat quarterback Frank Harris, the Roadrunners lead the conference and rank 11th in the nation in total offense (498.3 yards per game). They also rank second in C-USA in passing offense (350.3) and scoring offense (37.3 points per game).

By contrast FIU has one of the worst offenses in the FBS. The Panthers rank 125th (out of 131 teams) in the nation in scoring offense (16.6 points a game) and 115th in total offense (325.6 yards a game). Last week they managed just 12 points against UConn defense that entered the game allowing 32.7 points a game.

Why FIU can cover 

FIU has a tackling machine in Demetrius Hill. A 6-foot-2, 190-pound redshirt freshman from Miami, Hill leads the conference and ranks 11th in the country in tackles per game (5.6). He has twice this season made double-digit tackles in a game.

In addition, the Panthers face a UTSA offensive that is hampered by injuries. Right tackle Makai Hart is out for the rest of the season after being injured last week against Western Kentucky and will be replaced by a walk-on. Also left tackle Venly Tatafu, a converted guard who already is filling in for an injured starter, and left guard Terrell Haynes are both dealing with injuries.
