Appalachian State (2-1) vs. South Alabama (1-3) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
South Alabama has to come up with something defense to stay in this.
The Jaguars were able to get by Texas State, but the defense didn’t work well then, either.
To be fair, USA got ripped up by Oklahoma State and Memphis on the road – two great offenses – but Appalachian State is right up there. too.
The Mountaineers haven’t had a whole lot of pressure since the loss to Penn State – blowing out Charlotte and Gardner-Webb 112-16 – but they can’t mess around.
Four of the next five games are on the road, and while they should win them all, a loss to South Alabama would be a big problem in the race for a Group of Five New Year’s Six slot.
USA can’t convert on third downs and can’t control the clock. That won’t be a problem for the ultra-efficient Appalachian State attack.
With the Sun Belt’s best offense and the best defense, it’s muscle-flexing time for ASU.
