The Alabama State Jaguars head to the South Alabama Jaguars in an FCS-FBS college football matchup.

The Alabama State Hornets will be looking to climb back to .500 following a tough 28-25 overtime win at Alcorn State. The defense played well but the offense needed more balance and punch for Alabama State.

Jaguars quarterback KaDarius Davis connected on 20-36 for 155 yards and a pair of touchdowns along with an interception while losing 18 yards on 12 carries. Ezra Gray led the Alabama State rushing attack with 78 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown but he averaged just under four yards per touch. Wallace Corker paced the Jaguars receiving corps with three catches for 51 yards while Joe Williams IV made two receptions for 29 yards and a TD.

The South Alabama State Jaguars have had their share of problems on both sides of the football and that trend followed them in a 48-13 defeat at Georgia Southern heading in to their bye week. South Alabama was outgained 394-326 and committed four turnovers which was too much to overcome.

USA quarterback Evan Orth connected on 19-30 for 197 yards and an interception with the only pass that Cephus Johnson threw was also picked off and returned for a touchdown.

Tra Minter topped South Alabama on the ground with 38 yards on 16 carries including a trip to the end zone while Kawaan Baker made three receptions for 79 yards.

Alabama State Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game and under is 4-1 in Hornets last 5 games overall and under is 4-1 in Hornets last 5 non-conference games. Over is 4-0 in South Alabama Jaguars last 4 games following a straight up loss and South Alabama Jaguars are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up loss and over is 6-0 in South Alabama Jaguars last 6 games following a straight up loss of more than 20 points.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
