The Southern Illinois Salukis and the Arkansas State Red Wolves will meet up on the college football gridiron Saturday.
Southern Illinois is currently 2-1 on the year. After opening with a loss to SEMO, the Salukis took wins over UMass 45-20 and TN-Martin 28-14.
In the Week 3 win, Southern Illinois QB Kare Lyles had 92 yards and a pick, but most of the damage on offense came from Javon Williams and DJ Davis, who combined for 239 yards and three scores.
Over on the Arkansas State side, they’re 1-2 this season after a loss to SMU and a win over UNLV in the first pair. This past weekend the Wolves fell to Georgia 55-0.
In the Week 3 loss, Arkansas State QB Logan Bonner had 124 yards and DJ Chatman added 24 yards on the ground. Jonathan Adams had 85 yards on seven catches to lead the Red Wolves receivers there.
The Salukis are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games on turf and the over is 6-1 in their last seven on turf. Southern Illinois is 6-1 ATS in their last seven games after posting less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
Meanwhile, the Red Wolves are 6-1 ATS in their last seven after posting less than 100 yards rushing and the under is 8-1 in their last nine after posting more than 40 points. The over is 4-0 in Arkansas State’s last four after putting up less than 275 yards as well.
Southern Illinois has shown some flexibility in their offense over the last couple of games, doing it with passing versus UMass and the run versus TN-Martin, both to positive results.
Arkansas State is a little harder to gauge, as they were pretty much doomed from the start against Georgia but have looked okay offensively otherwise.
This should be a good matchup. I’m going with Arkansas State in a fun one to watch.
