The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns will play the Southern Miss Golden Eagles on Thursday night at M. M. Roberts Stadium in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns are 4-3 (2-2) this season after they defeated Arkansas State by a score of 38-18 in their last game. Louisiana gained 522 total yards and held Arkansas State to 0-11 on third down attempts in the win. The Louisiana offense is averaging 27 points per game with 227.7 passing yards per game and 128.9 rushing yards per game. Ben Wooldridge has thrown for 986 yards, 10 touchdowns, and one interception for the Ragin’ Cajuns this season. Chris Smith has rushed for 264 yards and two touchdowns, while Michael Jefferson has caught 24 passes for 387 yards and for scores for Louisiana. The Louisiana defense is giving up 19 points per game and 342.4 yards per game.

The Southern Miss Golden Eagles are 4-3 (2-1) this season after they defeated Texas State by a score of 20-14 in their last game. Southern Miss held Texas State to 243 total yards and 2-14 on third down attempts in the game. The Southern Miss offense is averaging 25 points per game with 208.4 passing yards per game and 124.1 rushing yards per game. Zach Wilcke has thrown for 979 yards, seven touchdowns, and eight interceptions for the Golden Eagles this season. Frank Gore Jr. has rushed for 568 yards and four scores, while Jason Brownlee has caught 31 passes for 397 yards and four touchdowns for Southern Miss. The Southern Miss defense is allowing 21.9 points per game and 349.9 yards per game.

Louisiana is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games on turf and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games. The under is 6-1 in Louisiana’s last 7 Thursday games. Southern Miss is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 conference games. The over is 4-1 in Southern Miss’ last 5 home games. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

These two teams have very similar stats so far this season and we should be in for a good game here. Both teams have won two games in a row, but Louisiana has had the larger winning margin. This total is very low and I know both teams play good defense, but I like the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
