The Southern Miss Golden Eagles and Texas State Bobcats face off on Saturday Saturday in a college football showdown at TSU Bobcat Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2015 it was Southern Miss that secured the 56-50 victory. 

Texas State comes into this game with a 3-4 record overall and they are coming off a loss in the last game against Troy. Texas State scored only 14 points and even though the defense was strong they still lost by three points. Layne Hatcher completed 21 of his 32 passes for 207 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Lincoln Pare finished with 18 carries for 207 yards and one interception. Texas State is averaging 22.7 points while their defense is giving up 24.7 points per game.

On the other side of this matchup is Southern Miss who sits with a 3-3 record overall and they are coming off a victory in the last game over Arkansas State. Southern Miss outscored Arkansas State 13-0 in the 4th quarter, and that led to the victory. Zack Wilke completed 11 of his 20 passes for 132 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Frank Gore Jr is a focal point of the offense and he finished with 19 carries for 96 yards and a touchdown. Southern Miss is averaging 28.5 points while their defense is giving up 23.2 points per game. 

Southern Miss is 0-5 against the spread in their last five conference games. Texas State is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games. The under is 5-0 in Southern Miss’s last five conference games. The under is 9-4 in Texas State’s last 13 games overall. 

I’m not sure that Texas State should be the underdog in this game, especially at home. Layne Hatcher looked good in the last game throwing for 207 yards and a touchdown, and I expect he is going to continue the success in this game. Southern Miss isn’t a great offensive team, and the Bobcats will get the job done. Back Texas State on the money line. If you want to play it safe, take them as the underdog getting the points.
