The Arkansas State Red Wolves will be looking to build off of a 2019 campaign that saw them record a win in the Camellia Bowl.  Arkansas State finished the 2019 season with an overall record of (8-5), while going (5-3) in the Sun Belt.  The offense averaged 33.7 points per game, which ranked 26th. The defense struggled to keep teams off the board, allowing 34.2 points per game, which ranked 114th out 130 FBS teams. The program is under the direction of Blake Anderson.  

The offense was guided by quarterback Layne Hatcher.  Hatcher passed for 2,946 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions as a freshman.  Marcel Murray paced Arkansas State in the backfield, rushing for 820 yards and 6 touchdowns.  Omar Bayless had an incredible season, hauling in 1,653 yards and 17 touchdowns, but was picked up by the Carolina Panthers. Wideout Kirk Merritt registered over 800 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns, but is also now in the NFL.  

As a team the defense registered 26 sacks and 12 interceptions.  The defense was led by defensive back Darreon Jackson.  Jackson was a senior, totaling 116 tackles and 2 interceptions.  William Bradley-King collected 8.5 sacks and 49 tackles.  The Red Wolves top 4 defensive backs were seniors during the 2019 campaign.

Sept. 5 at Memphis

Sept. 12 Howard

Sept. 19 at Michigan

Oct. 15 Georgia State

Oct. 24 at Appalachian State

Oct. 31 Troy

Nov. 5 at Louisiana

Nov. 21 at Texas State

Nov. 28 South Alabama

Arkansas State opens the season with their non-conference slate.  The Red Wolves hit the road for a game against Memphis, before playing host to Howard.  The rest of the non-conference schedule is a road game at Michigan and a home contest against Tulsa. Arkansas State will more than likely have losses to Memphis and Michigan. The Red Wolves have an above average chance to go 2-2 in non-conference play.  

The projected win total is set at 6.5 wins.  The Red Wolves return their quarterback and running back, but lost the majority of their key players from a defense that struggled last season.  Arkansas State will have a brand new secondary, while replacing others that left voids as well.  I’m going to side with the under, as Arkansas State has a lot to prove on the defensive side of the ball.
