The Vandals of Idaho travel to Monroe, Louisiana to take on the Warhawks this Saturday.
Both teams have struggled so far this year and desperately need a win to have hopes for a good season. These teams are pretty evenly matched, so this could be the turning point for whichever team takes advantage.
Although it may not exactly determine the conference champion, this game could have implications in the Sun Belt. At 1-3 ULM is ranked 9th in the conference, right behind Idaho.
The Vandals are coming off a disappointing 34-13 loss to Troy last week, while the Warhawks hope to recover from an embarrassing 58-7 beatdown at the hands of Auburn.
Idaho started off the season well enough with a 20-17 home win against the Bobcats of Montana State.
Things quickly went south though, and they suffered consecutive blowout losses to Washington (59-14) and Washington State (56-6).
The Vandals rebounded the following week in a thrilling overtime victory against UNLV in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, they were unable to keep up with a surprisingly good Troy team and lost 34-13 at home.
The Idaho defense has been beaten around all season long. No one was surprised at the losses to Washington or Washington State, but they allowed Troy to score 34 straight against them last week.
They are definitely more talented on the offensive side, led by quarterback Matt Linehan. Linehan has thrown for 902 yards this season but only three touchdowns and just as many interceptions.
Louisiana Monroe Warhawks
The Warhawks of ULM have had similar problems to their opponents this week.
They started off the season with a 38-21 home victory against Southern University but then faced a very difficult three game road trip. They were beaten soundly by Oklahoma 59-17 in week two, to the surprise of no one.
Their next game against Georgia Southern would come down to the wire, but they were unable to come back and lost 23-21.
No one expected them to beat Auburn the following week, but they should not have been absolutely manhandled like they were.
This will be only the second home game so far for ULM, and they hope to put an end to a three game losing streak. Their offense can be effective, but is a bit one-dimensional.
Their quarterback, Garrett Smith, is also the team’s leading rusher and has shown dynamic play-making ability.
Smith has thrown for 881 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with 198 and two TDs on the ground.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Prediction
Both of these teams will be looking to prove they can still contend in the Sun Belt. They have both lost by huge margins to Power 5 schools, but ULM lost in worse ways.
This one will probably not be pretty, and it will all come down to which defense makes key stops.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Idaho +4
ULM was absolutely destroyed by Auburn’s run game last week.
Although Idaho does not have the same level of talent at the skill positions, they have a tough offensive line and should be able to exploit ULM’s weakness.
Idaho’s defense has also shown more capability of stepping up in big moments.
