We have reached week nine of the college football season and this is a Sun Belt showdown.
The Appalachian State Mountaineers make the trip to Ladd-Peeples Stadium in Mobile to take on the South Alabama Jaguars.
Appalachian State Mountaineers
The Appalachian State Mountaineers very much look like they could be the non-power five teams that makes a BCS bowl.
They come into this game with a perfect record and the last couple of weeks they have really flexed their muscles, especially on defense.
In their last game they took on UL Monroe Warhawks and defense was elite giving up seven points and that led to the impressive victory.
On the season the offense has also been elite averaging 42.8 points per game which is seventh-best in all of college football.
In this game it’s going to be all about running up the score and the defense needs to flex their muscles in this game. If they give up more than 10 points that has to be considered a failure.
South Alabama Jaguars
On the other side of this matchup is the South Alabama Jaguars who only have one win and that was over an FCS level school.
The defense hasn’t been great, but the biggest issue as of late has been the way the offense has been putting up points. In their last five games they haven’t scored more than 17 points in a game and that type of offensive output isn’t going to get the job done in this game.
On the defensive side they are giving up 30.4 points per game which is 92nd in the NFL. They are facing a great offensive team so they are going to need to try and force field goals.
If they are giving up touchdowns and this game becomes a shootout, they are going to have a lot of issues keeping this game close, much less winning the game. The one thing they can’t do is fall behind early or it’s going to be a long Saturday of football for the home squad.
