South Alabama upsets Troy in the Battle for the Belt

Troy coach Neal Brown

Will Troy and South Alabama be able to put up enough points to hit the over when the two teams meet up on Wednesday at 8PM ET?

The Troy Trojans are 2-0 at home this season, 1-0 against conference opponents and 3-1 against non-conference opponents. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 48 points.

The South Alabama Jaguars are 0-2 while on the road this season, 0-1 against conference opponents and 1-3 against non-conference opponents.

Troy redshirt senior RB Jordan Chunn (undisclosed) rushed for 28 yards on 10 carries in Wednesday's 19-8 loss to South Alabama.

Key Play: Davis hit Minter on another long screen pass, this one a 49-yarder, to help flip the field and eat clock early in the quarter.

South Alabama took a 19-0 lead early in the fourth quarter on Gavin Patterson's 47-yard field goal. US made a quarterback change late in the quarter, with Dallas Davis replacing Garvin under center. Deondre Douglas and Emanuel Thompson have combined for 465 receiving yards and one touchdown while Damion Willis has 14 receptions. Xavier Johnson is the leading rusher with 345 yards and four touchdowns. Cole Garvin is completing 53.2 percent of his passes for 447 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. They have struggled to stop the pass, allowing 292.2 yards per game. The under is 4-1 in the Jags last five games and 15-5-1 in Troy's last 21 games overall. So, it's going to be interesting to see how the Jagaurs hang in this conference game. Defensively, Troy is allowing 18.6 points and 339.8 yards per game.

The score didn't quite tell the tale as the Trojans were unable to get anything moving offensively until late in the game and the gassed Troy defense was throttled in the second half.

Troy again forced a turnover-on-downs as South Alabama went for it on downs on their next drive, but after driving inside the South Alabama 10-yard line stalled out and Legassey missed his second field goal to end the comeback attempt.

The under has been a regular fixture of Troy football games. South Alabama long snapper Andrew Zink recovered at the 50, and the Jaguars got a quick first down to move into Troy territory as the fourth quarter began.

Despite the frustrating performance, Troy still outgained South Alabama 299 yards to 224.
