What’s Going To Happen
If Louisiana upsets Appalachian State earlier in the day, this is the 2017 Sun Belt Championship. If Appalachian State wins, the winner of this takes a piece of the Sun Belt title.
At the very least, the winner can print Sun Belt Champion t-shirts.
the Arkansas State offense is rolling. There was a clunker against South Alabama, but the Red Wolves managed to win six times in the last seven games to get here. It would’ve been nice to get a shot against Miami earlier in the season – Hurricanes Irma ended that – but whatever.
It’s been a good season, but finishing with eight wins and being one of the league’s true stars would make it great.
Troy also lost to South Alabama, but it crashed at home. Since then, the defense has been a killer in the five-game winning streak.
It’s the Sun Belt’s best offense vs. the Sun Belt’s best defense.
But Arkansas State can play a little D, too.
Troy has been a killer at getting into the backfield, and it’s only allowing 17 points per game, but Arkansas State is leading the league in sacks. On the other side, the key to the season has been a fantastic offensive line that’s giving everyone time to work.
But Troy can play a little on the O line, too.
With some due respect to Appalachian State, these really are the two best teams in the Sun Belt, and they’re about to show it in a terrific game.
At home, Arkansas State will get more from the passing game, more from the defensive front, and just a wee more overall to take the title.
Or, at least part of it.
