The Troy Trojans and South Alabama Jaguars face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Hancock Whitney Stadium.
Troy played pretty well to start the season but coming into this game they are struggling having lost three games in a row. Over the last three games, Troy has scored only 40 points total, and that type of offensive production isn’t enough to get the job done. Troy’s last game was played against Appalachian State Mountaineers and it was the defense that also really struggled giving up 47 points, On the season, Troy is giving up 26 points per game while the defense is giving up 26.8 points per game. Troy is led at quarterback by Gunnar Watson has been inconsistent this season but coming into this game he has thrown for 1584 yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions. In this game to come away with a victory the defense has been good.
On the other side of this matchup is the South Alabama Jaguars who have won four of their ten games this year but coming into this game they have lost four of their five games. The one win for South Alabama during that stretch was in their last game against Arkansas State, a game they put up 38 points in. On the season, South Alabama is averaging 21.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 27.1 points per game. At quarterback, South Alabama is led by Desmond Trotter who has thrown for 1773 yards, 11 touchdowns, and three interceptions. In the last game against Arkansas State he threw for 242 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interception.
South Alabama’s offense ran up the score in the last game and that is going to continue in this game. I also think that Troy will find offensive success, and this game is going to have plenty of points Back the over to cash.
