The Tarleton St. Texans are staying on the road Wednesday to face off against the #20 Michigan Wolverines at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 24 at Crisler Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’
It looks like Tarleton St. got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They were just a bucket shy of a victory on Monday and fell 54-53 to the North Dakota State Bison.
Meanwhile, the Wolverines lost to the Arizona Wildcats by a decisive 80-62 margin. Guard Eli Brooks (14 points) was the top scorer for Michigan.
The Texans have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 21.50 point spread they are up against. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-1 against the spread when expected to lose.
Tarleton St. is now 1-4 while Michigan sits at 3-2. Tarleton St. is 1-2 after losses this season, the Wolverines 1-0.
