Chase Fourcade is completing 70.6 percent of his passes for 526 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Fourcade must take care of the football for the Colonels to have a chance in this contest. Dai'Jean Dixon and Stefano Guarisco have combined for 357 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Julien Gums has four receptions.

The Texas State Bobcats haven't looked great through a quarter of the season, but they've also played some tough competition up to this point. The Nicholls Colonels will play their fourth straight road game, and while they've been decent dating back to last season, which includes a win over the Kansas Jayhawks, I'll always take the free points with the FBS team if I can get them. It's usually just a better, deeper roster on paper. Give me Texas State and the points.
