This week seven matchup will see the UL Monroe Warhawks take on the Texas State Bobcats. Both teams have a losing record, but both sides are 1-0 in the Sun Belt.
This game will be huge because the winner will remain undefeated in conference play and will keep pace with Appalachian State.
UL Monroe has won the last three meetings against Texas State.
UL Monroe Warhawks
The Warhawks played Memphis last week and were over-matched from the opening kick off. They lost this game 52-33 to fall to 2-3 on the season.
A small victory for the Warhawks is the fact that they had success moving the ball against the Tigers. They gained 575 total yards on the offensive side of the ball. UL Monroe ran the ball for 256 yards on 44 carries. They also threw the ball for 319 yards.
The Warhawks were in this game until the 6:30 mark in the 4th quarter. They were trailing 39-33 before allowing 14 points in a span of about 15 seconds to seal the game for Memphis.
The defense has been the side of the ball that needs serious improvement. They allow 506.8 yards per game, which ranks 126th in the country. More specifically, they allow 256.2 rushing yards per game, ranking second to last in college football.
Their scoring defense is not any better as they allow 39 points per game, 123rd in the country. The only chance the Warhawks have is to run the ball effectively because it will keep their defense on the sideline. If this game turns into a shootout, their defense will not be able to keep up and it could get ugly.
Texas State Bobcats
The Bobcats started the season 0-3 before beating Georgia Southern in their conference opener and beating up Nicholls State last week.
The Bobcats did pretty much all of their damage in the second half where they outscored Nicholls State 21-0. It was 3-3 at halftime, so a little bit concerning for the Bobcats going forward.
They gained only 362 total yards against their FCS opponent. They rushed for just 109 yards in this game, a week after rushing for 221 yards against Georgia Southern.
They are thus 128th in the country in rushing offense, averaging 80.8 yards on the ground per game. They have overall struggled to score in general, averaging only 19.8 points per game. They should have some success against a terrible Warhawks defense, but do not expect a ton of points from Texas State.
Their defense has been just as bad this year compared to the offense. They have allowed 29.6 points per game, 90th in the country.
Their rush defense is ranked 121st, allowing 221 yards per game. Stopping the run is the only way that Texas State stands a chance. If they get beat on the ground, they will likely get beat on the scoreboard.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Pick
Texas State does not have a very good offense and the Warhawks showed they could move the ball against a decent time like Memphis. I would lean to UL Monroe on the road to get the win.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNDER 61
Even though both sides do not have a great defense, the Bobcats have not showed the ability to score points in bunches. I like the under in this game as I believe UL Monroe will shut down Texas State for four quarters.
