Arkansas State (2-4) vs. ULM (2-5) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Oct. 29
Game Time: 7:00 pm
Venue: Centennial Bank Stadium, Jonesboro, AR
Arkansas State still has a ton of work to do, but it’s been able to rebound from an 0-4 start to be in the mix for the Sun Belt title, left as the only remaining unbeaten teams in the conference along with Troy and Appalachian State.
The Red Wolves still have to go on the road for four of their last five games, and that makes this a desperately-needed win.
It’s not going to be easy, but with the way the defense stepped up with its best game of the season last week against South Alabama, and with the offense starting to do just enough with the passing game to not be quite as awful as it was through the first part of the season, they’re starting to play like they’re supposed to.
ULM has the nation’s worst run defense, allowing 298 yards per game and coming off a disaster against New Mexico – the Lobos ran at will in a 59-17 win.
With QB Garrett Smith out for the year with a leg injury, backup Will Collins came in and was a nightmare, missing all seven of his passes, while Caleb Evans hit 12-of-15 passes even though the game got out of hand.
After allowing 476 rushing yards to the Lobos, can ULM slow down the ASU attack? Nope. The Red Wolves will own the game from start to finish, and for one of the first times all year, the attack will start to move the chains.
