Why Tulane Will Win
Keon Howard – a Southern Miss transfer – gets a chance to do something big against his old team.
The Tulane quarterback hasn’t been great so far – he’s only hitting 44% of his passes with no touchdown throws – but the offense is still running well enough to not worry too much about him quite yet.
Southern Miss has struggled in the first two games defensively, struggling against midrange passes and allowing South Alabama and Louisiana Tech to move their offenses a bit too easily at times.
Tulane’s ground game is working just fine, averaging close to six yards per carry with seven touchdowns in two games. But …
Why Southern Miss Will Win
That Tulane passing game – it’s not there.
Howard just isn’t accurate enough, and that’s been the problem for the Southern Miss defense. Meanwhile, for all of the issues in both losses, Jack Abraham has been fine on his shorter throws for a passing game hitting 72% of its passes.
The Golden Eagle offense will move the ball through the air, and for all of the issues, turnovers having been a problem. The team could use a break, and it’s due to be a +2 in turnover margin.
What’s Going To Happen
The Tulane offense stalled late against Navy, and it proved costly in the loss. Now it has to come up with a full four quarters against a desperate Southern Miss team looking to get its season going.
The Southern Miss passing game will be great, the Tulane running game will be great, and the Tulane running game will turn out to be a bit better of the two.
