Louisiana Tech vs University of Southern Mississippi

Louisiana Tech is coming off a strong victory against,nationally ranked, University of Louisiana Lafayette. LA Tech looked strong in their last outing and looks like they have really improved since last year. This will give LA Tech a huge momentum boost heading into Saturday as they face a struggling University of Southern Mississippi. Southern Miss currently is sitting at 0-2 and are struggling to get into a groove. The team had high expectations heading into the season but hey have fell short thus far. They recently lost to Troy 20-0. Te new and improved LA Tech should have no problem taking on Southern Miss. I’m taking the LA Tech 35-0.

Spring Hill College vs University of Louisiana Lafayette

Spring Hill College is still on a hot streak after defeating Troy University two weeks ago. The badgers had a bye week last week which gave them the opportunity to sharpen things up heading into their next test. The badgers have recently been recognized nationally and now are ranked #23 in the country. University of Louisiana Lafayette is coming off a tough loss to LA Tech. The team was heavily favorited heading into the match up but were surprised by a skilled squad. The team is looking to hit he ground running again against Spring Hill. This is going to be a great game to watch this week. It is going to be a tough battle but I think Spring Hill stays hot and picks up a 23-7 victory.

University of South Alabama vs Troy University

The Trojans are coming off a great victory against Southern Miss. They really picked it up after losing to Spring  Hill in week one. South is going to have its hands full with the strong running power of the Troy pack and their back line. South just suffered a pretty big loss at the hands of Tulane. They are looking to redeem themselves from last week and make a big upset in the conference by beating Troy. An interesting match up for this game will be at the scrum half position. Brett Halbe, South Alabama scrum half, and Eric Milner, Troy University scrum half are both Deep South all stars and should be fun to watch on Saturday. I think Troy brings home a win 28-14.
