Why South Alabama Will Win
The Jaguars might be sputtering offensively lately, but the defense hasn’t been bad. It’s not getting into the backfield enough, but overall it’s doing a nice job of not breaking after bending.

Why Louisiana Will Win
The South Alabama O has stopped.
The ground game hasn’t hit 100 yards in each of the last two games and has yet to get past 170 yards on the season. The passing attack is okay, but it’s not explosive enough to make up for the inability to run.
Louisiana’s offense has put up over 1,000 yards combined in the last two games with the balance continuing from the start of the Sun Belt season. Combine the running game with the defense that’s taking the ball away in bunches, and there shouldn’t be an issue if the team gets up early.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s going to be more of a grind than the Ragin’ Cajuns might like, but it’ll be a good, tough win.
South Alabama’s defense will fight the good fight, but the offense won’t be able to take advantage of its opportunities. Louisiana will get up in the first quarter and won’t lose the lead, but it’ll have to battle for a full four quarters.
