What you should know

The Arkansas State Red Wolves have enjoyed the comforts of home for the past two games, but now they must hit the streets. The Red Wolves and the Texas State Bobcats will go head-to-head in a sun belt fight at Jim Wacker Field at Bobcat Stadium on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. ET. If the nothing-to-nothing final from last meeting is any indication, this game will be decided by defense.

Things were close when Arkansas State and the Massachusetts Minutemen clashed last week, but Arkansas State eventually prevailed 35-33 over the opposition. Among Arkansas State’s leaders was RB Marcel Murray, who rushed for a TD and 123 yards with eight carries. That nimble footwork is noticeable as Murray hit the 100-yard rushing mark for the first time this season.

Meanwhile, last week’s matchup between Texas State and the South Alabama Jaguars wasn’t a total blowout, but with Texas State falling 38-21 on the road, it came darn close to turning into one. One thing that held the Bobcats back was the mediocre play of QB Layne Hatcher, who didn’t have his best game: despite two touchdowns, he threw an interception for just 3.38 yards per pass attempt.

The Red Wolves are expected to lose that next one by 6. The odds were in their favor against the scatter on the road this season, even if it was tough sledding overall. They are 3-1 ATS away but only 5-3 overall.

Arkansas State’s win put them at 3-7, while Texas State’s loss dragged them down to an identical 3-7. A few stats to keep an eye on: Arkansas State goes into the contest with just three thrown interceptions, good for fourth-best in the nation. But the Bobcats enter the matchup after picking up the ball 10 times, good for 35th in the nation. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
