Sun Belt weekday action continues here in Week 7 as the Appalachian State Mountaineers head into Louisiana Lafayette on Wednesday.
Appalachian State enters play, winners of 2 straight while the Ragin Cajuns have dropped back to back games.
Appalachian State Mountaineers
The Mountaineers gave Tennessee all they could handle in Week 1 of the college football season and it has set the tone for them on the year.
Appalachian State enters play 3-2 with wins over Akron and Georgia State the last two weeks as they ride some momentum entering play here on Wednesday.
One note to keep an eye on here for Wednesday’s contest will be the health of Marcus Cox. The top RB for the Mountaineers missed the win over Georgia State with a leg injury.
His status for Wednesday remains questionable. Cox has 4 touchdowns to his credit and has rushed for over 100 yards twice this season.
His status is a huge key for this Mountaineers team who is certainly a run first offense.
Appalachian State has averaged 213 yards per game on the ground, which ranks 36th in the nation.
UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns
The Ragin Cajuns limp into this one, losers of 2 straight games. However, both games certainly could have gone the other way.
UL Lafayette dropped both in overtime as road games in Tulane and New Mexico State both were high scoring as the Ragin Cajuns defense simply had no answer.
It’s been the pass game that has caused the most problems for them this year.
UL Lafayette has given up nearly 300 yards through the air, which has led to 33.6 points against per game.
The good news here is that Appalachian State is a run team. The Ragin Cajuns have allowed just 116 yards on the ground per game, which ranks 22nd in the nation.
Expect them to see the run game early from the Mountaineers, which obviously works into their favor.
Forcing the Mountaineers out of their comfort zone still will play into the Ragin Cajuns advantage, as they can mix in some blitz packages and force them into some bad decisions.
