Ohio is coming off a 28-26 loss to FCS opponent Duquesne. The Bobcats rallied from a 25-13 deficit in the fourth quarter, only to be thwarted at a two-point attempt that failed with only nine seconds remaining in the contest.

On the other side, Louisiana earned its first win of the season with a 27-24 win over FCS Nicholls. The Ragin' Cajuns actually had a 27-10 lead in the fourth quarter and were able to withstand a two-touchdown effort by the Colonels to hold on for the victory.

PicK: Ohio has struggled to run the ball this season and that doesn’t bode well against a stout Louisiana defense. So this is a game Louisiana should certainly win but based on Louisiana’s early resume this number feels too big. Louisiana struggled in its season-opening loss to Texas (38-18) and had to hold on versus a weak FCS team in Nicholls in Week 2. Buying this one up to +21 (-120) and taking the Bobcats to stay within ear shot.

The Ohio Bobcats had the worst performance of Week 2 after losing to Duquesne after being a 20+ point favorite, most had them as a 28.5-point favorite. As for ULL, they rebounded after a tough loss to Texas by beating Nicholls St. in a close one at home. Neither team has impressed so far and considering their competition both schools might be incredibly underwhelming this year.

With that being said I still hold stock in the Ragin Cajuns and believe they will have a good showing this weekend as they prepare for a tough Sunbelt schedule. Look for them to score early and often as Lewis controls the offense in the air and lights up the Ohio secondary.

As for the Bobcats, the only way they can compete in this game is if ULL’s defense does not show up for the game. Do not read into ULL’s performance the last two weeks and look for them to show up in a big way as they wish to storm into conference play. My pick- ULL -20
