But UTEP still has a bunch of “winnable” games:

Best-case 5-7, worst-case 1-11.

This is a very nice schedule for a rebuilding program. Your athletic director did a good job.

RE: 2019 Schedule Breakdowns: UTEP
The West continues to take hits....

#11 Rice 2-10 (2-6)

I know I picked UTEP to win 3 game, but I think Rice will have more conference wins, so I gave them the nod in my conference ranking. The record probably won't show it, but I think Rice is improving. I don't think anyone would argue against Rice claiming the toughest OOC schedule award. The Owls face 3 P5's and Army. And, all 4 of those opponents won their bowl games last season. That is a tough way to start the season. I doubt Rice has much left in the tank for the conference potion of their schedule. Against C-USA competition, I only see Rice beating UTEP and UTSA. Hang in there Rice. I think you have the right coach, and thing should get better.

My prediction for UTEP 3-9 (1-7)

L- Wake Forest
L- Texas
L- Baylor
L- LA Tech
L- Southern Miss
L- Marshall
L- @Middle Tenn
L- North Texas

Enjoy debating. I should post my #10 on Sunday.

What makes you think that UTSA will lose to Rice and UTEP? We had a bad team last year and we still beat them. So how did you come up with the in depth analysis other than your hatred for UTSA?

I think Rice can win 3. We'll surprise someone at home who's looking ahead and taking us lightly. We also have a shot at UTSA, MTSU, and UTEP. We have good coaches, but young players and no depth. If we get through the first four relatively healthy, we can win three, if not, maybe we win one.
