The Ragin Cajuns opened their season on the wrong foot with back to back losses but since then turned things around and have yet to taste defeat. Both of these schools have decent defenses that have the ability of picking up the loose end and taking audible to make sure they are set right. On the other hand the Troy Trojans look to get back on track after an ugly loss last weekend. This will be an entertaining game because of the passing accuracy both teams have, expect there to be some great catches over the middle with some even better hits laid on by receivers that are not paying attention.
Troy is coming off a hard loss but is still ranked 3 rd in the Sun-Belt conference, meaning that a good showing here might give them what they need for a possible bowl representation. The Trojans top receiver is their offensive leader, they go how he goes, with 48 catches for 740+ yards and 10 touchdowns he is the QB´s favorite choice in the open field.
Louisiana-Lafayette understands that they are under prepared for a game like this but at the same time this is what will help them prepare for future good conference teams. I expect them to really try and double team that receiver while at the same time not allowing the QB to get too comfortable looking for the backup or some running room. This team will have to make sure that when they have their chance they keep the defense on the field as long as they can, managing the clock.
What to expect:
The Ragin Cajuns are -12 in this game and with the type of passing game they have and the ability to get open, I think they should have that spread locked by halftime, this is not going to be a nice game for Troy fans so take the days off. Louisiana – Lafayette will capitalize on a slow moving defensive line was well as a penalty driven team.
