Tennessee State vs. Little Rock Prediction

I’m on Little Rock here. The Trojans just need to be worried about winning this game and not necessarily about style points considering they’re tied for the top spot in the OVC standings. I just don’t think that Tennessee State can hang on the road for 40 minutes though. Give me the Trojans at home in this one.
