The Southeastern Louisiana Lions and Lamar Cardinals face off on Saturday in a week 8 FCS college football showdown at Strawberry Stadium.
The Lamar Cardinals come into this game with a 2-3 record overall but when they have lost, it’s been the defense that has really struggled. Two games ago against Sam Houston State, the defense really struggled giving up 62 points and that led to the defeat. In the last game against Northwestern State they bounced back in a big way beating Northwestern State 31-23. Quarterback Jalen Dummett completed six of his 12 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown. Drummett also had a big game on the ground rushing 13 times for 84 yards and a touchdown. In this game for Lamar it’s going to be important that the defense steps up in a big way.
On the other side of this matchup is the Southeastern Louisiana Lions who sit with a 2-2 record overall but they are coming off a loss. In their last game Incarnate Word, the offense was strong scoring 45 points, but the defense really struggled giving up 56 points and that led to the loss. Cole Kelley is the star of the show for Southeastern Louisiana and in the last game he threw for 431 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. In this game the offense is going to need to be good, but if the defense struggles, they could be in trouble again in terms of coming away with a victory. There is no doubt the offense is good, but their defense is still a major problem,
The Lions defense is awful and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be any different in this game. Look for both teams to have plenty of possessions that end in touchdowns and for this game to go well over the total.
