We have reached week eight of the college football season and most teams are now playing in the conference portion of their season.
In this game it’s a Conference USA showdown on Saturday night.
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles make the trip to Joe Aillet Stadium to take on the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. The Golden Eagles have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles have had a nice season so far this year, and they are right in the mix of things to win the Conference USA title.
They currently sit with a 4-2 record, and besides a loss against the North Texas Mean Green, a game they were favorites in the season has gone just about as they expected.
For the Golden Eagles the strength of this team on the defensive side of the ball. They are only giving up 18.8 points per game.
In their last game against UTEP the defense was fantastic not giving up any runs, and that led to a 24-0 victory.
One thing to watch is if Kwadra Griggs, the starting quarterback for the Golden Eagles is able to go in this game. He has a hand injury and missed the last game because of it.
If he isn’t able to go Keon Howard will get the start, and he has played well this season coming into this game having thrown for 591 yards and four touchdowns.
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
On the other side of this match up is the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs who have had a very up and down season so far this year, and it’s still hard to figure out what exactly this team is about.
In their last game they played the University of Alabama-Birmingham. They came in as 9.5 point favorites but the offense really struggled in the game and that led to a 23-22 defeat.
For the Bulldogs the defense isn’t as good as the Golden Eagles, so it’s more important that the offense steps up in these games.
So far this season the Bulldogs are giving up 28 points and 407.2 yards per game. To win this game the defense is going to need to try and make whoever is playing quarterback for the Golden Eagles uncomfortable early.
The offense is also going to need to step up. I would think this game is going to be a little hire scoring, so the offense is going to need to keep up.

I don’t think it matters who plays quarterback for the Golden Eagles their defense is going to be the difference in this game.
The Bulldogs offense won’t be able to get anything going and the Golden Eagles will pull the upset.
