The South Alabama Jaguars improved to 2-2 (1-0 Sun Belt) on the season after defeating the Texas State Bobcats, 30-20, this past Saturday. South Alabama was in a tight game with Texas State as the game was tied at 20-all early in the 4th quarter, however, the Jaguars were able to get the victory after scoring 10 unanswered points over the final 7:10 of the 4th quarter.

The Warhawks are 1-4 ATS on the season and just 9-24 ATS in their last 33 games on grass. The Jaguars are 3-1 ATS on the season and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games.

UL Monroe could be one of the worst football teams in all of College Football and have looked really bad on the road this season, losing to Army and Liberty by a combined score of 77-14. South Alabama is certainly no offensive juggernaut themselves, however, between the fact that I think Carlos Davis will have some succuss on the ground and that the Jaguars defense should keep the Warhawk mostly off the score board, I think the play here is to take South Alabama to cover at home. Good Luck!
