Network: ESPN2

Is Appalachian State able to take control of the Sun Belt race? With big battles against Georgia Southern and Troy on the road, the Mountaineers can’t afford to lose this against a Ragin’ Cajun team that has the potential to come back roaring after a rough start.

ULL is playing better than the record, losing the last two weeks in tough overtime games in a four-overtime loss at Tulane and an OT battle at New Mexico State. With three of the next four games on the road, there can’t be a miss here.

Are the Ragin’ Cajuns be healthy enough? Star RB Elijah McGuire is back from a foot injury, but the defensive front is banged up and should have a problem against the ASU running game no matter who’s handling it.

Marcus Cox has been out with a leg injury, but Jalin Moore has more than picked up the slack with 406 yards and three scores in the last two games, going against a run defense that’s held up just fine despite all the issues. The problem for ULL? The secondary hasn’t been able to slow down anyone’s passing game.

ASU will balance out the offense a bit, but the defense will be enough to pull off the tough road win. The Ragin’ Cajuns will come up with a good performance at home with enough key third down stops to get the Mountaineer offense off the field.

ULL will own the field position battle in an interesting, tight game that tilts the Sun Belt title chase.
