We have reached week three of the college football season which means more and more teams are playing in conference games. In this one it’s a Sun Belt Conference showdown when the Texas State Bobcats make the trip to South Alabama to take on the Jaguars.
This will be the first meeting between the two teams since 2015 when Texas State came out ahead 36-18.
Texas State Bobcats
The Texas State Bobcats finished the season last year losing seven of their last games so considering that they have actually played well to start the season.
In the first game they were overmatched by Rutgers and the offense could only get seven points total and that led to a big loss.
In the second game they took on Texas Southern and they were big favorites and even though they only won by 16 points, a win is a win.
The Bobcats are team that likes to run the ball on offense and come into this game averaging 186.5 yards per game on the ground.
On the defensive side of the ball they have actually been pretty good giving up only 27.5 points per game and this game it’s going to come down to how well the offense can play.
If the offense struggles in this game they are going to have some issues.
South Alabama Jagaurs
On the other side of this matchup is the South Alabama Jaguars who have played two teams to start the season and both times the games have ended in losses.
In both games the offense hasn’t been great and in their last game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys the defense really struggled giving up 55 points.
Over the first two games they are only averaging 19.5 points and 261 yards. On the defensive side they giving up 42.5 points per game.
In this game the offense needs to be better and they need to prove what happened the first two games isn’t how the offense is going to be the rest of the year.
They aren’t facing a great offensive team in the Bobcats and the defense can’t make them look like they are. They need to create a groove early on that side of the ball.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Pick
To be honest I have zero idea why the South Alabama Jaguars are favored by over ten points. I think they are the better team but it’s crazy that they are favored by that many points.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Texas State ATS
I think this will be a low scoring game and Texas State will do enough to keep this game close. The Jaguars will come out with a victory but the Bobcats will cover the spread.
