Bowl and Conference Implications
Arkansas State can tie for the Sun Belt title with a win. Whether it’s a two-way tie or a three-way one with Appalachian State depends on whether or not Troy beats Georgia Southern. Texas State’s season is over with a loss.
What Does Each Team Need To Do?
The Red Wolves turned their season around, overcoming a four-game losing streak with a six-game winning run. But just as they were in a position to take a piece of the Sun Belt roster, they wiffed against Louisiana-Lafayette last week. The passing game stepped up over the second half of the year, and the defense has gotten stronger and stronger, allowing 16 points or fewer four times in the last six.
Meanwhile, Texas State continues to try figuring out something that works as the year closes out. The Bobcats have gotten worse and worse, failing to score more than 14 points in any of the last five games, but the defense is getting lit up by anyone who tries to throw and it’s not coming up with a meaningful stop in blowout after blowout.
What’s Going To Happen?
Arkansas State will get past the loss last week to roll at will on the way to a piece of the Sun Belt title.
