Arkansas Pine Bluff simply isn't a good football team, as its only win of the season was a triple overtime contest against Morehouse. Meanwhile, Alabama State has proven it can win on the road, as that's where both of the Hornets victories have come this season.
I look for Alabama State to win big here, as Arkansas Pine Bluff is a very bad team.
