What’s Going To Happen
This HAS to be when the Chip Lindsay era gets going at Troy.
It’s been a rough run so far with a defense that’s getting hammered by everyone but Akron, allowing 42 points or more in three of the last four games – all losses.
But the Trojans are playing better than South Alabama.
Offense has been the issue for a Jaguar team that hasn’t scored more than 17 in and of its last four games. Without a win over an FBS team this year, USA has to get the passing game going against a Trojan secondary that’s getting bombed on left and right.
Troy is allowing over ten yards per pass with 13 touchdowns on the year, but do the Jaguars have the firepower to take advantage of the struggling D? They were able to throw on Georgia Southern last week, but this isn’t a consistent enough air show to pull this off.
For all of its problems, Troy is getting into the backfield and it’s disruptive enough to be a consistent problem for a USA offensive line that’s getting destroyed week after week.
South Alabama has to be perfect, it has to win the turnover battle, and it has to be able to hang with the Trojan punch-for-punch. It can’t and won’t do any of the three.
