Not a lot to go on yet in the new era at Troy. They won their opener but it was against an FCS opponent.
That is where Southern Miss got its only win too. They lost to an SEC team last week. No surprise there.
This one will help reveal where these programs are at. Close game expected too.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
Back to back road games for Southern Miss and for what it is worth their next game is at Alabama. Maybe that creates a little urgency.
Southern Miss won their opener against FCS Alcorn State but got beat easily by Mississippi State last week. They probably had no chance in that one but might here.
QB Jack Abraham has experience and can keep his team in the game, he needs to be more mistake free though. He has picks in both games this season.
It hurts that their running game is so poor though, just over 100 yards per game.
Per the scheduling note this one might be more important and Troy is a team they do compete with for recruits. They need a good start to put the pressure on.
Troy lost head coach Neal Brown to West Virginia in the offseason. They started the season with a win over Campbell so it is hard to know how much things have changed or not.
They were very balanced on offense in their opener. Kaleb Barker looked sharp directing the attack. He is a senior but did not play a ton under the old regime. He can lead them to another win here.
Troy has been able to get more than enough players to play strong defense and I expect that to continue. Southern Miss will push them more than they were in their warm up.
If Brown stays this is probably considered a sure win so it will be a bit of a barometer of where the program is at right now. I think they get it done at home.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Troy -2.5
These teams are probably pretty evenly matched but the situation is so much better for Troy – at home and with an extra week to prepare. They are looking for guys to hit.
Southern Miss could be a little beat up too. Troy is going to be a great bet in the first half too.
