Bowl and Conference Implications
South Alabama needs a win to get to six wins and become bowl eligible. This is the last game of the year for New Mexico State before it’s relegated out of the Sun Belt and the FBS world.
What Does Each Team Need To Do?
South Alabama has come up with a quirky season, good enough to beat Mississippi State and San Diego State, and weird enough to loss to ULM and Idaho thanks to an offense that can’t quite come up with the same game twice – at least until recently.
The Jaguar attack has cranked up 31 point or more in each of the last three games thanks to a passing game that’s starting to work just well enough – and a punting game that keeps the field tilted – and now comes a potential shootout against a New Mexico State defense with no defense whatsoever.
The Aggies shut down Texas State a few weeks ago, but that’s been one of the only moments of fun in a season that hit a wall. They’ve lost four of their last five games, even though the passing game cranks out a ton of passing yards and can’t seem to stop anyone’s ground game.
USA is just weird enough to blow this against a motivated NMSU team, but it’ll keep up the pace and get that sixth win.
What’s Going To Happen?
South Alabama has followed up losses with wins going loss-win-loss-win-loss. If the pattern keeps going, here comes the win to get to six,
