What’s Going To Happen
Still buzzing off the win over LSU, Troy now has to prove that it was all for real.
No, beating South Alabama wouldn’t get people to believe that the Trojans should be ranked ahead of LSU, Syracuse, and a whole slew of other brand name teams – even though, technically, they have to be – but it wouldn’t hurt.
The problem has been the Troy offense. Potent and deadly throughout the breakthrough 2016 season, it can’t seem to score on anyone. It’s failed to come up with more than 27 points on any FBS team, including New Mexico State and Akron.
South Alabama is also struggling to score, also failing to score more than 27 on anyone in the FCS. However, the Jaguars hung 45 on the board against Alabama A&M and Troy could only managed 34 against Alabama State.
But the USA offense really, really can’t move the ball. It sputters on third downs and doesn’t have nearly enough explosion. Xavier Johnson is a nice back, but he’s dealing with a fantastic Troy run defense that’s not giving up a thing.
South Alabama is playing well enough on defense to keep this from getting out of hand. Troy has yet to blow up this year, and while it’ll win, it’ll be a fight to survive and advance.
