The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks and Troy Troans face off on Thursday in a college football showdown at Troy University Veterans Memorial Stadium.
Louisiana-Monroe is still looking for their first win of the season and not only have they lost every game, they have had issues keeping games close. In the last game against Arkansas State the offense could only manage 15 points while the defense gave up 48 points and that led to the loss. On the season, Louisiana-Monroe is averaging 16.3 points while their defense is giving up42 points. Under center for the Warhawks should be Jeremy Hunt who has thrown for 742 yards, six touchdowns, and four interceptions. In this game if Louisiana-Monroe wants to come away with the victory, their defense is going to need to be better or they are going to be in trouble.
On the other side of this matchup is the Troy Trojans who sit with a 5-6 record, but they almost beat Coastal Carolina in the last game. It was a last second touchdown that cost them the game, but they still have to have some confidence heading into this game. Troy comes into this one averaging 27.4 points per game while their defense is giving up 25.7 points per game. Troy’s passing game has been good, but they are only averaging 102 yards per game on the ground and having a more balanced attack would be helpful.One big question heading into this game is who will be under center. Gunnar Watson left the last game because of injury, and if he can’t go Jacob Free will be getting the star. On the season, Free has thrown for 1051 yards, six touchdowns, and five interceptions.
The under is 16-5 in Louisiana Monroe’s last 26 games played on fieldturf. The under 8-3 in ULM’s last 11 games overall. The under is 9-3-1 in Troy’s last 13 games overall. THe under is 5-2-1 in Troy’s last eight games on fieldturf.
The Warhawks offense isn’t good and that is going to continue in this game. Look for a low scoring game that stays well under the total.
