Coastal Carolina vs South Alabama Game Preview


Why Coastal Carolina Will Win

Grayson McCall is okay?

He was supposed to be done for at least the regular season, and likely the year, with a shoulder injury suffered in late October, and then … poof. He was back and winging it around for over 300 yards in a win over Texas State.

The offense still worked without him, but the Chanticleers lost to Georgia State the week before. He returned, and five touchdown passes later all was right with the world.

The ultra-efficient passing attack might not go off on a solid South Alabama pass D, but all it has to do is be effective and consistent because …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why South Alabama Will Win

The South Alabama offense has hit a snag.

Granted, it’s because it had to deal with Tennessee Appalachian State, and Troy over the last three weeks all on the road, but there are issues.

The running game hasn’t been nearly good enough, but this is still the best team in the Sun Belt at controlling the clock. The Jaguars should be able to keep McCall and company on the sidelines just enough to keep this game from getting too ugly, but …

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

Turnovers are going to do in the South Alabama hopes of getting to six wins and bowl eligibility.

It’ll play just well enough at home to make it a fight, but Coastal Carolina just  doesn’t make enough mistakes to matter. Just when it seems like this is going to get interesting, the downfield playmaking ability of the Chanticleer offense will take over.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Tennessee vs South Alabama Game Preview


Why South Alabama Will Win

The offense might be struggling a bit, but the defense continues to be just interesting and good enough to have a good moments.

The Jaguars are great on third downs, the secondary doesn’t give up a ton of passing yards, and the run D is the best in the Sun Belt. The overall style of play helps.

This isn’t a team that’s going to move in a hurry – it’s going to control the clock for at least 35 minutes against the warp-speed Tennessee O. However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Tennessee Will Win

The South Alabama offense has stalled.

The defense might be just good enough to keep this from getting out of hand, but losing former South Carolina QB Jake Bentley to a knee injury – he’s trying to get back; he’s practicing – has been a problem. USA doesn’t have the pop to keep up.

The Tennessee passing game should keep hitting the downfield play – South Alabama’s secondary gives up lots of yards per pass, even if it doesn’t give up a ton of yards overall – and will try turning the lights out in a hurry because …

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

Tennessee is going to care.

If this was just a letdown game after dealing with Georgia and with Vanderbilt to close, there might be a concern against a team with a feisty defense that can keep this interesting.

However, Tennessee is bowl eligible with a win. It’s not going to want to mess around in this. It might take a half to put it away, but the O will get there.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

South Alabama vs Appalachian State Game Preview


Why South Alabama Will Win

Just one more win.

South Alabama has put together an interesting season with a strong defense that’s great against the run, good at getting off the field, and second in the conference in total D.

The style might not always be scintillating, but it’s effective.

The passing game is efficient, there aren’t a lot of mistakes, and the team controls the clock better than anyone in the Sun Belt. The team has the right blend of positives to bother Appalachian State, and now it’s just one more win away from being bowl eligible.

However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why Appalachian State Will Win

Yeah, the offense has been okay, and the defense has held firm, but the success has mostly worked against the mediocre teams.

South Alabama pushed Troy, and lost. It pushed Louisiana, and lost. It plays games close and tight, but it’s not always into opening things up and taking shots down the field – there aren’t a lot of big plays.

Appalachian State’s running game is roaring, ripping through Coastal Carolina and everyone else over the last several games but Louisiana – the lone loss since the defeat to Miami early in the season.

Louisiana and Texas State were able to run well on South Alabama, and App State will, too.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 10

What’s Going To Happen

Yeah, South Alabama is just one win away from bowl eligibility, but after this is a trip to Tennessee before closing out against Coastal Carolina – it needs this. It won’t get it.

Appalachian State has to keep pressing. It’s in the driver’s seat for the Sun Belt East title, but it still has to deal with Troy before closing with Georgia Southern. It’s not going to run wild on the South Alabama defense, but it’ll be effective enough to control the clock against a team that has to control the time of possession battle.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

South Alabama vs Troy Game Preview


Why South Alabama Will Win

Can the Jaguars finally put it all together to get the one win to get bowl eligible?

It’s not hard. They win when the offense is great, the lose when it isn’t.

They got through the first three games against awful teams to build up a 3-0 start, and since then when they get to 420 yards or more, they win, when they don’t they lose.

That’s going to be tough against the Troy defense, but as long as the passing game can keep things moving, the defense should be able to take care of the rest.

The Jaguars are great defensively on third downs, they’re amazing at controlling the clock, and they have to not freak out when the running game doesn’t work a lick because …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 10

Why Troy Will Win

Troy’s run defense is terrific, and that’s partially because the pass rush is among the best in the country. The South Alabama offensive line is good in pass protection, but it’s not good enough to deal with what’s coming.

The deadly combination of Javon Solomon and Richard Jibunor are too good and too relentless for the nation’s leading team in tackles for loss and isn’t far off in sacks.

The offense has enough balance and versatility to keep everything moving, but it’s that defensive front that has to take over right away and get the Jaguar O off the field.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

This should be fun.

South Alabama will throw well enough, and then the Troy defense will clamp down with that pass rush.

The South Alabama pass rush will be a killer, too.

The Trojans need to generate the takeaways that turn games around, but the Jaguars are just as good at forcing mistakes.

This will be a dead even, fun game that hangs on whose defense can do just a little bit more.

At home, Troy will get it done with one late stop.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Arkansas State vs South Alabama Game Preview


Why Arkansas State Will Win

The O will get going from the start.

The defense might not be doing a whole lot of anything, but the passing game should hit 300 yards, and the team is a wee bit rested with nine days off since pushing Louisiana way too hard in a 28-27 loss.

Layne Hatcher doesn’t throw interceptions, he’ll drive the ball down the field, and now he and the attack should be give South Alabama’s secondary all it can handle.

The Jaguar defense has been solid all year, but it’s coming off a rough day in a shootout loss to ULM – it gave up 369 yards through the air – and hasn’t played a whole slew of high-powered passing teams.

This is the most dangerous O USA has faced, but …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

Why South Alabama Will Win

This is the worst defense South Alabama has played.

Arkansas State is dead last in America in total D, allowing 579 yards per game, and it’s not getting better.

The Red Wolves allowed 540 yards or more in every game since the opener against Central Arkansas, and now they have to deal with an effective and efficient South Alabama passing attack that’s been terrific over the last few weeks.

The Jaguar ground attack doesn’t do a whole lot, but this is the game to take the pressure off of QB Jake Bentley. The Arkansas State defensive front allowed 200 rushing yards or more in every game but the opener, and gave up over 1,200 yards on the ground over the last three outings.

College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews, Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

Arkansas State played one of its best games of the season last week against the Ragin’ Cajuns, and it should give South Alabama a hard time in a bit of a shootout.

ULM doesn’t have the most dangerous of attacks, and it went off on the Jaguars last week. However, as always, Arkansas State will put up a ton of yards and points, and its opponent will do a little bit more.

It’ll be a whole lot of fun. Arkansas State games usually are.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

South Alabama vs ULM Game Preview


Why South Alabama Will Win

Don’t turn the ball over.

ULM was able to get by Troy several weeks ago with just one takeaway, but how did it pull off one of the biggest shockers of the 2021 season against Liberty? Three takeaways, all picks.

The ULM offense is okay, but it’s not anything to worry too much about.

The team is awful at third downs on both sides of the ball, the O line gives up way too many plays in the backfield, and …

South Alabama’s defense is brilliant on third downs and defensive front comes up with a whole lot of plays in the backfield.

Week 8 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why ULM Will Win

So besides picking off Liberty QB Malik Willis, what else is ULM doing that’s able to get it to a stunning 3-3?

It really is about the turnover margin. It’s not good enough to overcome a slew of mistakes, and it doesn’t screw up enough to matter.

The offense takes advantage of almost every opportunity, the defense does a lot of bending without breaking – sometimes; there were problems against Coastal Carolina and Georgia State – and …

Week 8 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

South Alabama should be able to do what Liberty didn’t.

The Jaguar passing game won’t make the big mistakes, the yards will be there throughout, and the ULM offense won’t be able to keep up unless it’s +3 in turnover margin – which it won’t be.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Georgia Southern vs South Alabama Game Preview


Why Georgia Southern Will Win

The South Alabama offense has been fine over the last few games, but it hasn’t been enough in tight losses to Louisiana and Texas State. The problem?

The run defense.

Great over the first three games, the Jaguar D gave up 225 yards on the ground to the Ragin’ Cajuns and 212 to the Bobcats – those were the only two times the program allowed more than 200 on the year.

Overall the defense has been great, but if the Georgia Southern ground game is in a groove, forget it.

The Eagle couldn’t get going against Troy and still almost pulled it out in a 27-24 loss. However, it’s 2-0 when it gets over 300 yards with its dynamic ground game, and …

Week 7 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why South Alabama Will Win

Georgia Southern isn’t getting to three bills on this USA D.

The Eagles are a bit more versatile than normal, but the lack of efficiency with the passing game, the inability to get moving on third downs, and a defense that’s giving up yards in chunks is just a part of the puzzle.

It’ll take a massive performance by the ground game, but South Alabama is No. 1 in the nation in third down stops, the line isn’t bad at getting into the backfield, and the offense is able to move just enough to control the time of possession.

Week 7 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

We’re not exactly talking about the Georgia D here, but South Alabama should be strong enough on the defensive front to keep the Eagles from getting their version of the ground attack moving.

It comes down to turnovers. The Jaguars are great at taking the ball away, but the three giveaways were deadly against a Texas State team they should’ve taken down – they lost 33-31 last week.

Georgia Southern doesn’t come up enough big plays on defense to matter.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

South Alabama vs Texas State Game Preview


Why South Alabama Will Win

The Jaguars actually passed their real first big test even though they lost.

They rolled through their first three games against three bad teams, but they pushed Louisiana in a 20-13 loss with a passing game that wasn’t bad along with a good performance by the D.

Texas State’s offense is okay, but the defense is having a nightmare of a time on third downs and there’s no pass rush to bother the USA backfield.

On the flip side, South Alabama is No. 1 in the nation in third down stops.

Week 6 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Texas State Will Win

The running game has the potential to control the tempo a little bit.

It has yet to bust out big, but it’s been able to hit the 170-yard mark twice to go along with a good–aced passing game that’s been decent enough to at least keep the team in games.

For all the good things South Alabama has done, it doesn’t come up with a whole lot of tackles for loss and it gives up way too many plays in the backfield.

Week 6 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

South Alabama is playing well.

It’s got the defense and the ball control to own the tempo throughout. Texas State likes to keep teams on their heels, but they’re not going to be able to do that well enough with South Alabama QB Jake Bentley getting time to come up with a sharp performance.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Louisiana vs South Alabama Game Preview


Why Louisiana Will Win

Nothing has actually changed.

Seriously, Louisiana wasn’t supposed to win at Texas to start the season, and being 3-1 is right.

No, the running game hasn’t been the same devastating force of the last several seasons, but Levi Lewis and the passing attack have been good enough to pick up the slack.

On the other side, the South Alabama offensive line isn’t doing much for the running game, and it has problems keeping teams out of the backfield, but …

Week 5 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why South Alabama Will Win

The Jaguar defense gets off the field in a hurry.

The pass rush has been outstanding, but it’s the ability on third downs that’s making all of the difference. No. 1 in the nation in third down D, USA is allowing teams to convert just 19% of their chances.

No one’s running on this D, with Bowling Green gaining nine yards and Alcorn State coming up with just 32. However …

Week 5 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

South Alabama (2-0) vs Alcorn State (1-1) Game Preview


Why Alcorn State Will Win

It hasn’t been the smoothest of starts for the Braves, but they were able to get by Northwestern State last week with a decent day from the passing game in the 13-10 comeback win.

The defense has been tough – especially against the run – and while the offense hasn’t been able to get going, it’s not making the big mistakes with just one turnover.

Even with the 2-0 start, the South Alabama offensive line isn’t keeping defenses out of the backfield and the O has struggled – there’s no ground game – but …

Week 3 College Football Expert Picks

Why South Alabama Will Win

So how has South Alabama done it so far? Playing Southern Miss and Bowling Green helped, but the defense has been the star, especially against the run.

Southern Miss struggled on the ground, and Bowling Green finished with just nine yards. The Jaguars aren’t beating themselves, the pass rush has been outstanding, and the defense has been a brick wall on third downs. Alcorn State isn’t going to get going on the ground.

Week 3 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

South Alabama doesn’t have enough of an offense to run away and hide, but it’ll do just enough to get up early and then rely on its defense the rest of the way.

Alcorn State’s offense isn’t going to start getting rolling this week.
