Arkansas State (4-3) vs. Louisiana (3-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
The East is by far the stronger of the two Sun Belt divisions, but the West has a battle going on, too.
ULM is right there, and South Alabama is technically still breathing, but the winner of this game is likely going to be the one to represent the division in the Sun Belt championship.
The Ragin’ Cajuns lost in a decent fight with Appalachian State last week, but it’s been able to crank up the offense enough over the previous two weeks to start getting everything going under Billy Napier. And it needs to with a road trip to Troy coming up next.
They’re great at moving the chains, and they have an efficient passing game, but the defense is a rumor, with no takeaways, and little happening against the run.
Arkansas State as able fo finally jumpstart the O with a 51-point explosion against Georgia State. Justice Hansen went off – it took long enough – and now the veteran quarterback has to be ready gear it up in a shootout.
Get ready to have some fun.
Both passing games will go off, but the Red Wolves will come up with an occasional defensive stop.
Expect lots of points, and lots of swings, but the ASU pass rush will come through in a few key moments, and the Sun Belt’s No. 1 pass defense will do just enough to survive two big Louisiana drives in the fourth quarter.
