What to Know

Get ready for a Sun Belt battle as the South Alabama Jaguars and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks will face off at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at JPS Field at James L. Malone Stadium. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

When you finish with 300 more yards than your opponent like South Alabama did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They made easy work of the Georgia Southern Eagles and carried off a 41-14 win. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 31-8. QB Jake Bentley had a stellar game for the Jaguars as he passed for three TDs and 388 yards on 31 attempts in addition to punching in two rushing touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Louisiana-Monroe sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 31-28 victory over the Liberty Flames last week. The win came about thanks to a strong surge after the half to overcome a 14 to nothing deficit. RB Andrew Henry was the offensive standout of the matchup for the Warhawks, punching in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD.

South Alabama is the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last Thursday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

The wins brought South Alabama up to 4-2 and Louisiana-Monroe to 3-3. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Jaguars are 153rd worst in the nation in rushing touchdowns allowed, with eight on the season. The Warhawks have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 236th most passing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 16 on the season. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
