South Alabama was outstanding on the defensive end against Arkansas State and had no trouble securing the victory after going up 28-0 midway through the 2nd quarter. South Alabama outgained Arkansas State by a 421-224 margin and won the turnover battle by a 4-1 margin in the victory.

The Troy Trojans had their 2-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 4-4 on the season after being defeated by the 24th ranked Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, 35-28, on October 28th. Troy gave Coastal Carolina all they could handle on their home field, however, the Trojans could not fight back after a 54-yard TD run by Shermari Jones gave the Chanticleers a 35-21 lead with 11:23 left in the 4th quarter. Troy was outgained by Coastal Carolina by a 510-389 margin and committed 1 turnover in the loss.

Defensively, Troy is holding their opponents to an average of 21.5 ppg on 313.9 total yards per game (204.3 passing yds/g; 109.6 rushing yds/g).

The Jaguars are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game, however, are just 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Trojans are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

South Alabama comes into this game with just a 1-2 record on the road this season, however, I like how the Jaguars have looked over the past few weeks which includes two blowout victories over Georgia Southern & Arkansas State. Troy is led by their strong defense, however, the Trojans offense has struggled at times and between the fact that I think the South Alabama passing attack will be able to put up some points and the Trojans will struggle a bit against the Jaguars 35th ranked scoring defense, I think the play here is to take South Alabama and the points. Good Luck!
