The Idaho Vandals are three games into their season, and after losing to Western Michigan a week ago, 38-27, they are 1-2 on the year.
South Alabama, while also boasting a 1-2 record three games into their season, is coming off a monumental (albeit, cupcake) win over FCS Alabama A&M a week ago, 45-0.
In 2016, Idaho took down the Jags at home, 38-31.
Things were looking good for the Vandals last week as they entered the fourth quarter against Western Michigan.
They held a 28-19 lead—a lead they had extended to nine with a Matt Linehan three-yard touchdown run and a 39-yard touchdown pass, both in the final three minutes and 39 seconds in the third quarter.
The fourth quarter, however, did not go their way.
During the fourth, not only did the Vandals put up a goose egg on the scoreboard, they gave up 18 points to the Broncos. Turnovers were a huge problem in this one, as the team gave up the ball three times.
Against USA, the Vandals need a concerted effort on defense not to give up big plays. South Alabama is far from an elite offensive program, but they won big last week with big plays that broke the game wide open.
South Alabama Jaguars
On the year, the Jags are posting just 321 yards per game. That number is only good enough for 114th in the nation.
South Alabama is also posting 26.3 points per contest, which is only good enough for 86th in the country.
So how does a team lacking consistent offensive firepower win a game just a week ago by 45 points?
Last week, the Jaguars took full advantage of their FCS opponent by scoring their first points off an 83-yard blocked field-goal return. Later in the game, they recovered a fumble in the endzone, and then the team eventually went up 31-0 on a 66-yard bomb.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Pick
The Idaho Vandals are far from being the toast of the college football world, but the Jaguars are in for a shock if they think they’re going to have the same level of success as they did a week ago against an FCS program.
For starters, expect the Vandals to take better control of the football in this one. Also, don’t think the Jaguars are going to see the same kind of big-time, momentum-creating plays that they were able to put together in Week 3.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Idaho ATS
This one should be a close finish, as the opening line indicates. But when it’s all said and done, we’re picking the Vandals to pull the upset not just against the spread, but straight up.
