The Edward Waters Tigers and Jackson State Tigers face off on Sunday in a Week 2 FCS College Football showdown at the Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium.
There is a lot of buzz around this Jackson State Tigers team as Deion Sanders has raised the expectations for what this team is going to be able to do. For Jackson State there are a whole lot of question marks, and chances are, most won’t get answered until this game is in full swing. All the talk is about freshman quarterback Shedeur Sanders, but he is not eligible to play since he played high school football in the fall. Alon Jones got the most snaps of anyone who was eligible and signs point towards him getting the start, The strength of the team this year is expected to be the defense, which has evidently dominated the scrimmages so far this season.
On the other side of this matchup is the Edward Waters Tigers who will be playing their only game of the season in this matchup. This is an Edward Waters team that isn’t very talented and last year they only had one win. Most times when this team struggled it was the defense that let them down and in the last game of the season against Prairie View A&M the defense gave up 41 points and that led to the loss. In this game if Edward Waters wants any chance to keep it close the defense is going to need to step up or this is going to be a long game.
Jackson State is the better team and Deion Sanders players are going to put on quite a show in this game. Look for Edward Waters defense to have no answer and Jackson State will come away with a cover of the spread.
