Arkansas State (1-4) vs. South Alabama (3-2) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Oct. 15
Game Time: 7:00 pm
Venue: Centennial Bank Stadium, Jonesboro, AR
Arkansas State managed to turn its season around – at least that’s its hope – after a horrible start with a win over Georgia Southern in the middle of last week. Not only was it a big win, but it gave the Red Wolves time off to get ready for a South Alabama team whose season might have just taken an interesting twist.
With the LSU game cancelled on November 19th – so the Tigers can play Florida – now USA has the chance to play someone a whole lot easier, helping the run at a bowl game.
But the Jaguars are pressing for something bigger, with the talent and fight to beat Mississippi State and San Diego State, and with enough to challenge for the Sun Belt title.
The secondary has been outstanding all year, and now the offense should be even stronger with QB Dallas Davis back after missing the win over the Aztecs with a foot injury, and with top RB Xavier Johnson returning after suffering an ankle injury.
Arkansas State still has issues on defense, and the offense continues to make too many mistakes, getting by Georgia Southern despite turning the ball over five times, and with 12 giveaways over the last three games.
That’ll be costly this time around. USA will win the turnover battle, capitalize on the mistakes, and get enough from the defense against the ASU running game to get out with a key win before going into the showdown with Troy in the middle of next week.
