Texas State is likely the worst team in the Sun Belt which might make them the worst team in America. They have plaid some conference opponents close though and their defense is not terrible. .
The strength of the Sun Bel appears to be in the other division. Monroe actually had a good chance to capture the division and play in the first ever conference title game. This should be an easy victory.
Texas State Bobcats
Texas State’s only win this season was against FCS Texas Southern and just one example of how bad they are is the fact that they got rolled up at Rutgers earlier in the season. They are unlikely to win another game this year.
There is not a single major category on offense where the Bobcats are even in the top 100. When you are that inept not only are you easy to defend but it puts a lot of pressure on your defense, and they are on the field a lot.
Texas State is not good at football. You never know when you have teams that are both not good how the games are going to play out but even if the Bobcats play a strong game it might not be enough to get a road upset.
UL Monroe Warhawks
ULM is a typical Sun Belt team. Within the conference they are not likely to get embarrassed often but beyond that there is not a lot of success. They will probably finish about .500 in the league and maybe qualify for a minor bowl.
Compared to Texas State the Warhawks are practically the “Greatest Show on Turf”. They are able to run and pass the ball though scoring is not exactly keeping up with that. Their defense is absolutely dreadful though. There is no other way to categorize it.
This is game they should get but unless Texas State is in full give up mode I think they will make them work for it a little. Even though they can move the ball they are not elite and it is possible they are taking the opponent lightly.

The Sun Belt is called the Fun Belt because some feel like anything can happen. I am not sure that is the case in this game because Texas State is pretty lame. Still UL Monroe is not winning any beauty contests.

Like so many games we will know if the underdogs/visitors have any chance early. If Texas State can score first then maybe we get a game but most likely they are playing from behind from the get go. That is all it will take for ULM.
Once the Warhawks get the lead it will likely be pretty smooth sailing from there. This might be a sneaky value play when you see the score prediction
