|Date & Time||Saturday September 26, 2015, 7:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns -7 -- Over/Under: 53.5
Cajun Field and the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns host the Akron Zips Saturday.
The Akron Zips broke in to the win column with a 52-9 rout of FCS Savannah State in week three. The Tigers were obviously a better match up then Oklahoma and Pittsburgh even though it took the Zips some time to get going with a 24-0 second half erasing all hopes of a Savannah State upset. The boxscore said this was a mismatch with Akron piling up a 626-202 yardage edge and 31 first downs. Tra’Von Chapman and Thomas Woodson gave the Zips plenty of production in the air with a combined 337 passing yards with each throwing a TD and pick with Jerome Lane grabbing three balls for 99 yards and a score. Connor Hundley gave Akron punch on the ground with 127 yards and a score while Donnell Alexander and Woodson combining for another 191 yards.
The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns upped their record to 2-1 following a 44-17 victory versus FCS Northwestern State. This one was never in doubt with the Ragin’ Cajuns racking up 547 yards and allowing 389 yards. UL Lafayette was dominant on the ground with nearly an eight yard average per touch. Quarterback Brooks Haack was explosive in the air with 187 yards on 7-8 with Devin Scott recording receptions for 90 yards while Haack also added 51 yards on the ground. Elijah McGuire was a the Cajuns go to guy on the ground with 162 yards and five touchdowns followed by Darius Hoggins and Torrey Pierce combining for another 110 yards. ULL did what they wanted, when they wanted an simply wanted to win and remain healthy.
The Zips are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. S-Belt and are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games while Akron are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. The Ragin' Cajuns are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game and are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game while ULL are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. I see the line being about right and I hesitate to jump on either team to be honest…
