Why Lamar Will Win
There’s a lot to potentially like about the Lamar offense if the passing game can get going. That wasn’t always a given in a rough 2019 season, but it’s got veteran parts who should be able to open things up a little bit more. At the very least, the ground game should be okay,
In this, though, the key for the Cardinals will be getting into the backfield.
For all of the problems and issues a few years ago, the defense was great at generating pressure and tackles for loss.
Why Nicholls Will Win
It’s not fair or right to take too much away from a win over Lincoln, but Nicholls got in a nice live scrimmage in the 87-3 win last weekend. QB Lindsay Scott – the former Missouri Tiger and then JUCO transfer – took target practice and the defense allowed just 20 passing yards in the blowout.
The offensive line will be among the best in the SoCon as the year goes on, but it’ll be that defense that has to take over after getting time to reload. The front seven only returned one starter, but there was a good rotation. Now …
What’s Going To Happen
Nicholls gets to play someone a whole lot better, but it’ll still be almost as strong. It won’t be 87-3 nasty, but Scott should be able to fire at will with the midrange passing game keeping the chains moving in a solid overall performance.
