In a game from NCAAF, we will see the teams of Appalachian State Mountaineers at Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns on Wednesday at Cajun Field, Lafayette, Louisiana.
Appalachian are coming off a win against Georgia State, 17-3. It was a low-scoring game with both offenses struggling to produce. Lafayette lost a double overtime game on the road against New Mexico State and they are now standing at 2-3. Lafayette almost made the sensation of beating Tennessee in week 1 and they also lost to Boise State 45-10 in their only game against a top-level team.
Their offense isn’t great but their defense is great against the run. They mostly count on their running back Elijah McGuire who rushed for 1000+ yards last year with 13 touchdowns. He has already got 500+ yards this season and 3 TDs. They also have a senior QB who has nearly 1000 passing yards and 8 touchdowns.
I think Lafayette will keep it close and they have the weapons on defense to shut Appalachian to some degree. It’s their offense that will have to move the chains on third downs. And if they can do that, they can even come away with the win or at least be very competitive against the favorites.
