Dixie St. vs. UTRGV: How to watch, schedule, live stream info, game time, TV channel

Who’s Playing

UTRGV @ Dixie St.

Current Records: UTRGV 6-12; Dixie St. 9-10

What to Know

The Dixie St. Trailblazers lost both of their matches to the UTRGV Vaqueros last season on scores of 49-82 and 65-72, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. The Trailblazers and UTRGV will face off in a WAC battle at 9 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Burns Arena. Dixie St. should still be riding high after a victory, while UTRGV will be looking to get back in the win column.

While not quite a landslide, the contest between Dixie St. and the Lamar Cardinals this past Thursday was still a pretty decisive one as Dixie St. wrapped it up with a 71-55 win at home.

Meanwhile, the Vaqueros came up short against the Utah Valley Wolverines this past Thursday, falling 66-56.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Dixie St. is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

The Trailblazers’ win brought them up to 9-10 while UTRGV’s defeat pulled them down to 6-12. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Dixie St. is 41st worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 74.6 on average. UTRGVs have had an even harder time: they are stumbling into the matchup with the 11th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 77.6 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
