Zach Smith is completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 166 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Smith has one or less touchdown passes in seven of his last eight games. Josh Johnson and Keylon Stokes have combined for 118 receiving yards and one touchdown while Sam Crawford Jr. has four receptions.

Defensively, Tulsa is allowing 16 points and 277 yards per game. Kendarin Ray leads the Tulsa Golden Hurricane with 11 tackles, Zaven Collins has three sacks and Allie Green IV has one interception.
The Arkansas State Red Wolves look for a statement home win to get a game above a .500 record. The Arkansas State Red Wolves have won three straight home games. Logan Bonner is completing 60.8 percent of his passes for 337 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. Bonner and Layne Hatcher have combined for five touchdown passes. Jonathan Adams, Jr. and Roshauud Paul have combined for 265 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Dahu Green has five receptions.

The Golden Hurricane are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in September and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Red Wolves are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 21-10 in Golden Hurricane last 31 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Red Wolves last 5 games overall.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane put up a fight against Oklahoma State last week on the road, and they had their chances to win that game outright after leading heading into the fourth quarter. Arkansas State has been impressive through two games, as the Red Wolves hung around with Memphis in their season opener and just beat up on Kansas State, which included winning outright as two touchdown underdogs. Tulsa needs to show more signs of life offensively before I can get behind this club.
There's no way I can turn down Arkansas State in a pick em spot after what I've seen against two respectable FBS schools. Give me the Red Wolves.
