Louisiana Tech @ UTSA
Current Records: Louisiana Tech 3-1; UTSA 3-2
What to Know
The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs are 5-0 against the UTSA Roadrunners since October of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. Louisiana Tech and UTSA will face off in a Conference USA battle at 8 p.m. ET at Alamodome. The contest is expected to be a close one, with the Bulldogs going off at just a 2.5-point favorite.
The matchup between Louisiana Tech and the Marshall Thundering Herd last week was not particularly close, with Louisiana Tech falling 35-17. The losing side was boosted by WR Adrian Hardy, who caught nine passes for one TD and 102 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Hardy has posted more than 100 yards receiving.
Meanwhile, UTSA came up short against the Army West Point Black Knights last week, falling 28-16. UTSA's loss came about despite a quality game from WR Zakhari Franklin, who caught 12 passes for two TDs and 138 yards.
The losses put the Bulldogs at 3-1 and the Roadrunners at 3-2. Louisiana Tech doesn't typically stay down for long -- they're 1-0 after losses this year -- so UTSA (0-2 after losses) won't have an easy go of it.

The Hawkeyes are coming off a 10-3 season, which included a three-game win streak to end the regular season and a 49-24 win against Southern Cal in the Holiday Bowl. In 2020, Iowa should be a traditional Iowa team: fundamentally sound that will dominate opponents at the line of scrimmage.
Iowa returns running back Tyler Goodson and explosive wideout Ihmir Smith-Marsette, who scored receiving, rushing and kick-return touchdowns in the Holiday Bowl. Spencer Petras is likely taking over the QB1 spot, and linebackers Djimon Colbert and Nick Niemann return after productive 2019 seasons.
What you need to know about Purdue
Boilermakers coach Jeff Brohm tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week and won't be on the sideline for the Iowa game. Co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Brian Brohm will serve as the team's acting head coach and will call the plays against the Hawkeyes.
Purdue is coming off a 4-8 season and returns wide receiver Rondale Moore, who decided to return to the Boilermakers after initially announcing he was opting out of the season to prepare for the NFL Draft. Moore has had an extremely productive career thus far at Purdue, recording 143 receptions for 1,645 yards and 14 touchdowns.
