Louisiana was expected to have a tough go of it last week, and, well, they did. Their painful 49-17 loss to the Florida State Seminoles might stick with them for a while. The Ragin' Cajuns were in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 35-3. No one had a standout game offensively for Louisiana, but QB Chandler Fields led the way with two touchdowns.
Meanwhile, things were close when Texas State and the Arkansas State Red Wolves clashed last week, but Texas State ultimately edged out the opposition 16-13. Texas State's only offensive touchdown came from RB Lincoln Pare.
Most of the squad's points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Seth Keller booted in three field goals, the longest a 49-yarder in the fourth quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the contest.
The Ragin' Cajuns are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on Louisiana's opponents whenever they hit the road.
