South Alabama can’t seem to come up with a Sun Belt win, but it’s still very much in the hunt for a bowl appearance thanks to the strange and shocking non-conference wins over Mississippi State and San Diego State. But now it needs to start winning again.

The Jaguars have to win three of their last four games to get it done, helped by Hurricane Matthew and getting hosed by the LSU-Florida rescheduling. Of course, LSU would’ve probably won that game, and now the Jags get 21 days off in November to rest up for the final two relative layups against Idaho and New Mexico State.

But that means they have to at least split between Georgia State and ULM.

The Panthers have won two of their last three, with a decent passing attack and a solid defense that shut down UT Martin. They have to win four of their last five, and with three in a row at home after this, there’s a chance to go on a run with a win in Mobile.

But USA will get the job done, using its solid passing game and strong secondary to start well and keep pushing the Panthers. The Jaguars will keep the chains moving; the Panthers – with QB Conner Manning banged up and questionable, at best – won’t.

Georgia State is dead last in the nation in time of possession – it just won’t have the ball enough. The South Alabama Sun Belt drought ends.
