The Jackson State Tigers have not had an easy schedule up to this point and will play yet another road game. Jackson State's offense has shown zero signs of life through three games. The Bradley Braves are piling up the victories and have shown time and time again that they're capable of absolute beatdowns if their opponent doesn't match their energy. Jackson State is going to have a hard time here unless the offense picks up.
