The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks and the Appalachian State Mountaineers will meet up on the college football circuit Saturday.
The Warhawks are 3-3 this season so far. Louisiana-Monroe has fallen to Florida State, Iowa State and Memphis but otherwise taken out Grambling State, South Alabama and Texas State.
In the win over the Bobcats, ULM quarterback Caleb Evans put up 225 yards with a pick, and Josh Johnson had 114 yards and two TDs rushing. Malik Jackson was the lead receiver there on 55 yards from five grabs.
Over on the Appalachian State side, they’re crushing at 5-0 this year. The Mountaineers have thus far dispatched East Tennessee State, Charlotte, UNC, Coastal Carolina and Louisiana.
In the win over the Cajuns, App State QB Zac Thomas managed 147 yards while Darrynton Evans had 69 yards on 22 carries. Corey Sutton had 58 yards from two catches to lead the receivers.
The Warhawks are 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 in October and 2-6 ATS in their last eight overall. Louisiana-Monroe is 1-5 ATS in their last six after an ATS win and 2-5 versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, the Mountaineers are 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win and 17-5 ATS in their last 22 overall. App State is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win.
Scoring-wise, the Warhawks have been pretty consistent, with at least 20 points in each outing this year. When they don’t let things get out of hand on the other side (like 72 points versus Iowa State) Louisiana-Monroe is usually pretty competitive these days.
Trouble is, App State can score as well; they’ve put up at least 34 points in four of their five games. I’m going to stick with the Mountaineers to keep it rolling and get a cover here.
