What’s Going To Happen

Nothing can be decided quite yet in the Conference USA race, but no matter how this turns out, there’s a chance it could be a preview of the championship game.

Louisiana Tech is on an eight-game winning streak including a victory over Southern Miss. If it wins this and Southern Miss loses to UTSA, the Bulldogs can clinch the West next week at UAB.

If they lose, though, and UAB beats UTEP, the division race gets really, really interesting next week.

Marshall has upper-hand in he East with wins over WKU and Florida Atlantic. On a four-game winning streak, it can’t clinch this weekend – FAU is off until next week – but it can be knocking on the door.

Louisiana Tech’s offense has turned unstoppable. There was the “it hasn’t played anyone” problem for most of the year, but it rocked a good USM team, and last week took out North Texas 52-17.

The offensive line is playing at a high level, the defense is fantastic at taking the ball away, and senior QB J’Mar Smith is on a tear, throwing for 210 yards or more in every game with 14 touchdowns and just three picks.

But now he has to deal with the Marshall pass rush and one of the league’s better defenses.

The Herd might not have Tech’s offensive attack, but the secondary has tightened up over the second half of the year allowing just three touchdowns and winning despite a 362-yard passing day from FAU’s Chris Robison and a huge performance from WKU’s Ty Storey.

How is MU getting it done?

Three takeaways saved the day against WKU, and 254 rushing yards got the job done against FAU.

Louisiana Tech hasn’t allowed more than 190 yards rushing against any FBS team, is giving up a mere 3.7 yards per carry, and it’s a +6 in turnover margin over the last three games and have been a +7 overall since the loss to Texas.

At home, the Marshall pass rush will do just enough to bother Smith, and there won’t be the giveaways that the Bulldogs have been living on. Tech won’t go off, but it’ll have just enough offense to pull off the big road win.
