Saturday will be the Sun Belt opener for both teams. Troy is coming off an impressive upset at Nebraska, while UL-Monroe got blown out last week at Texas A&M. Both teams need to start their conference play off in the right direction, so it is vital both teams start the game strong.
The last time these teams met was in 2015 when Troy defeated UL-Monroe 51-14.
Troy has emerged as a dangerous team to play over the past few years. They took Clemson to the final minutes the year won it all, and like mentioned above they defeated Nebraska 24-19 on the road in week three.
Troy has been fairly efficient on the offensive side of the ball so far this season. They are averaging 34.3 points per game, which ranks 56th in the NCAA. Their leading passer is quarterback, Kaleb Barker, who has thrown for 461 yards through the first three games. He has five passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, and only two interceptions. His passing completion percent sits at 65.8%. Barker did not play very well at Nebraska, but in the end it did not matter as his team made up for it. Running back, B.J. Smith has 11 carries for 70 yards against Nebraska and was able to score twice. This gives him 167 yards for the season and four touchdowns.
As for the defense, they allow an average of 27.3 points per game, which ranks 85th. Against Nebraska, they were able to force two interceptions and 4 fumbles, only one of which that was recovered. The defense should have an easier time going up a conference opponent Saturday.
The Warhawks started their season 2-0 before having to travel to Texas A&M where they got blown out 10-48. They did keep this game relatively close in the first half, with the halftime score being 10-24. However, in the second half they could not manage to score.
Through three games the Warhawks have three rushers of 100+ yards. Quarterback, Caleb Evans, has already thrown for 766 yards. He has thrown for five touchdowns, but the problem is he has three interceptions. They have only managed 21.7 points per game, which ranks 110th. If they are going to pull the upset on Troy, their offense is going to have to play much better.
As for the defense, they allow 33 points per game. This is a huge red flag for the Warhawks if they want to compete for a Sun Belt title.

After a huge win at Nebraska, Troy will come ready to play and will knock off the Warhawks on the road for their first conference win of the year.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNDER 64
Troy’s offense is poised to have a big day against one of the weaker teams in the Sun Belt. Because their defense held Nebraska to 19, they should have no problem doing the same to UL-Monroe, which in return will keep the total under 64.
