UAB vs. San Diego State Prediction

I’m on the under here. I don’t know if I can truly trust San Diego State to get the cover but the one thing that travels well for the Aztecs is that defense that any Aztec team is known for. I think the Blazers may have some struggles adapting in this game, so give me the under here.
