Louisiana (4-4) vs. Troy (6-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
It’s the team with all O and no D, vs. the team with great D and some O.
Both teams are deep in the hunt for the Sun Belt title, tied in their respective division races with big showdowns coming up.
Louisiana had the game it had to have with the win over Arkansas State last week, and now, even if it loses this, it’s fine – win out in the final three games, play for the Sun Belt title.
The Trojans have it tougher. They have to go on the road to face Georgia Southern and Appalachian State, so … lose here, and that’s about it.
They’re generating a tremendous pass rush, and it’s leading to plenty of takeaways to make up for issues and inconsistencies on the offensive side. The O has to get going, though, because the Ragin’ Cajuns are rolling, spring 42 points or more in three of the last four games.
The Trojans will control the game with their running game, and the defense will take care of the rest. Louisiana QB Andre Nunez will get his yards, but Troy will dominate the turnover battle to make up for losing the yardage battle.
