Why Arkansas-Pine Bluff Will Win
It’s a veteran Golden Lion team that was all set to go last week but saw its game against Texas Southern postponed thanks to a water issue in the area.
On the field, Arkansas-Pine Bluff have a ton of experience returning on offense with a ground game that should be solid enough to help out an efficient passing attack.
Southern might have beaten Alabama State 24-21, but it turned it over three times and struggled to get the offense going – scoring ten fourth quarter points to pull it off. It wasn’t a smooth performance, but …
Why Southern Will Win
It made a slew of mistakes, it had a hard time getting the O going, and it didn’t do much of anything to control the clock, and again, won.
Arkansas-Pine Bluff could’ve used a warm-up game, too. The offense that couldn’t convert enough third down chances in 2019 is going to need a little time.
Ladarius Skelton is a better quarterback than he showed against Alabama State. He didn’t throw all that well, but he led the team with 72 rushing yards and a score.
What’s Going To Happen
Southern is better than it showed, and now it’s about to start playing better. It should be able to do a whole lot more offensively – especially with the ground game – but it’ll be the defense that does the job and gets the win.
