    A Conference USA matchup has the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (2-3) and UTEP Miners (1-4) playing on Friday night at 9 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network. The SportsLine consensus odds list UTEP as a 1-point favorite, while the over/under is 51 in the latest Louisiana Tech vs. UTEP odds (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our college football odds page). UTEP has several players battling injuries including quarterback Gavin Hardison, wide receiver Tyrin Smith, OL Steven Hubbard, running back Mike Franklin, and defensive backs Trejon Hugue and McKel Broussard.

    Before making any Louisiana Tech vs. UTEP picks, you NEED to check out the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

    The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Since its inception, it has generated a stunning profit of nearly $2,500 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

    The model has factored UTEP sophomore running back Torrance Burgess Jr. leading the team in rushing yards with 298 on 56 carries (5.3 average) with two touchdowns. His longest run of the season was 40 yards in the win over Incarnate Word. In last week's loss to UNLV, he nearly rushed for 100 yards for the first time in his career when he carried 19 times for 99 yards (5.2 average) and one score. He has also been a solid pass catcher, and is eighth on the team with eight receptions for 117 yards (14.6 average), including a long of 51 yards.

    The model also knows Louisiana Tech redshirt senior quarterback Hank Bachmeier was off to a solid start to the season, but suffered a shoulder injury in Week 4 and missed last week's Nebraska game. In four games, he has completed 70 of 106 passes (66%) for 756 yards and five touchdowns. He has been picked off twice. If he cannot go this week, backup Jack Turner would get the nod. He filled in admirably last week and for the season has completed 39 of 59 passes (66.1%) for 438 yards and two touchdowns. He has been picked off twice.

    Now, it has set its sights on Louisiana Tech vs. UTEP. We can tell you the model is leaning Over the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in nearly 60% of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any college football picks.
