Interestingly, Louisiana Tech was the school that struggled down the stretch. Eric Konkol’s bunch finished in a three-way tie for fourth place in Conference USA competition, four games behind Alabama Birmingham. Old Dominion, Florida Atlantic, North Texas and Western Kentucky were among the common opponents to spoil the Bulldogs’ 8-1 start.

As for the Buccaneers, they nearly matched Chattanooga in the Southern Conference. Back in non-league play, Steve Forbes’ group secured a big 69-68 triumph over Georgia Tech. East Tennessee State ultimately captured 18 of its final 23 contests, with three of those defeats coming at the hands of Furman.

Thankfully, the Paladins are nowhere to be found in Sin City. ETSU must merely defeat the team with the 0-4 ATS record in its last four. We like the Bucs’ chances.
