South Alabama faces Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday, November 14th at Cajun Field for a Week 11 NCAA football Sun-Belt matchup.
South Alabama is coming off a 23-6 loss to Coastal Carolina in Week 10 on the road. South Alabama could not get much going on offense in the loss, and on third-downs South Alabama had a 2-15 conversion rate. South Alabama is now 3-4 on the year and 2-2 in the Sun Belt conference. South Alabama has lost back-to-back games after starting the season with a 3-2 record. South Alabama scores 22.4 points per game and earns 375.3 total yards per contest as well. South Alabama allows 24.4 points per game to its opposition, as its defense has done a decent job so far this season. South Alabama will look to break its two-game losing streak, but it will not come easy against this Louisiana-Lafayette team.
Louisiana is ranked #25 in the country and is 6-1 on the year. Louisiana is coming off a 27-20 win over Arkansas State in Week 10 to earn its fourth conference win of the season. Louisiana scores 29.6 points per game and earns 426.0 total yards of offense per contest. Louisiana allows 23.9 points per game, as its defense has been one of the toughest to face in the Sun Belt. Louisiana is now on a three-game win streak and is inside the AP top-25 for the second time this season. Louisiana has a 2.0-game lead over South Alabama for first place in the Sun Belt West division, so a win in this game could almost clinch a spot in the Sun Belt championship.
Louisiana opens as 14-point favorites and the total is set at 55.5. I expect the Rajun Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette to win this game by 20 points at home. Louisiana has something to prove as a ranked team, and I like Louisiana's chances at Cajun Field. I will take Louisiana and lay the 14 points in this one.
