The Houston Baptist Huskies and Eastern Kentucky Colonels meet Saturday in week 5 college football action at Roy Kidd Stadium.
The Houston Baptist Huskies have one more chance at a victory to prevent a winless CFB season. The Houston Baptist Huskies have lost eight of their last nine road games. Bailey Zappe is completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 1,453 yards, 12 touchdowns and one interception. Zappe has two or more touchdown passes in 11 of his last 14 games. Jerreth Sterns and Ben Ratzlaff have combined for 711 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Josh Sterns has nine receptions. The Houston Baptist Huskies ground game is averaging 70.7 yards per contest, and Ean Beek leads the way with 117 yards on 34 carries. Defensively, Houston Baptist is allowing 52.6 points and 629 yards per game. Caleb Johnson leads the Houston Baptist Huskies with 36 tackles, Greg Vincent has one sack and Patrick Wolfe has one interception.
The Eastern Kentucky Colonels look for back-to-back victories to get to a .500 record. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels have won three of their last five home games. Parker McKinney is completing 60.4 percent of his passes for 476 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. McKinney has five touchdown passes in his last two games.

Will update with trends once they're released.
The Eastern Kentucky Colonels have looked bad defensively through three games this season and a win over The Citadel doesn't move the needle all that much. The Houston Baptist Huskies played three straight FBS programs, and that includes taking Texas Tech down to the wire and almost pulling off the upset of the college football season. You have to be more impressed with Houston Baptist up to this point and they should play hard with this being the last game of their season. Give me the free field goal.
