Central Arkansas is apart of the Southland Conference, which decided to postpone football activities till the spring. Central Arkansas was not aligned in that decision, so they created their own schedule, with the mindset that they would play anyone and anywhere.
Arkansas State has had an up and down season. The high of the season was beating Kansas State but was unable to build off that momentum with their next two games being postponed and losing their most recent game to Coastal Carolina 52-23.
The Red Wolves should have no problem winning this game, but will they cover?
Central Arkansas Bears
Credit to the Bears in creating their own schedule and responding by playing every opponent this year fairly close. Last week they blew a 21 point lead in the fourth quarter to North Dakota State, which will be NDSU only game this season. The Bears also lost close to UAB and squeezed out wins versus Missouri State and Austin Peay.
This FCS team has had a solid offense this year and has averaged 28.5 points per game, but there are some issues that have really hurt them this year.
Quarterback Breylin Smith has been able to throw for 781 yards and 8 touchdowns through four games. Yet he only averages 5 yards per passing attempt, has thrown 6 interceptions, and completes only 54.1% of his passes.
Additionally, the Bears have only converted 15/58 times on third down which is a miserable 25.86 percent. Central Arkansas is also only averaging 113 yards per game on the ground, which will they will need to improve versus Arkansas State Red Wolves’ lackluster rushing defense.
Arkansas State Red Wolves
Arkansas State has one of the most electric players in the country in Jonathan Adams Jr. You should treat yourself by watching his highlights, especially those versus Kansas State. In that game, he had 8 catches for 98 yards and 3 touchdowns. Averaging 13 yards per reception and a long of 52, he is always a threat down the field and you will most likely see him playing on Sundays in the NFL.
The Red Wolves have more offensive pieces than just Adams though. They run a two-quarterback system where Logan Bonner gets most of the snaps and has thrown for 502 yards and 5 touchdowns. Layne Hatcher has thrown it 21 fewer times and has 411 yards in the air and 3 touchdowns.
The rushing attack for the Red wolves has been decent, but has room for improvement and will need to take advantage of a weak Central Arkansas Rushing defense.
On defense, the Red wolves have two-star cornerbacks, but as a team, they need to be better at stopping the run.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Pick:
You will want to keep an eye on the weather report with Hurricane Delta coming in. As of writing, the report shows rain and 17 mph winds. That generally helps the under, which opened at 66 and has been brought down to 62.5.
I bet on Arkansas State to win versus Kansas State then had them losing to Coastal Carolina last week and this week I see them bouncing back even in the tough conditions. I would play Arkansas State at the current number at -13.5, but I am really looking to take the under at 62.5.
