The Alabama State Hornets and Arkansas Pine Bluff Golden Lions face off on Saturday in a week 7 FCS college football showdown at Golden Lion Stadium.
The Alabama State Hornets come into this game having played only two games so far this season and they sit with a 1-1 record overall. After losing the first game of the season against Southern University, Alabama State bounced back in a big way against Jackson State coming away with a 35-28 victory. In the last game, Alabama State was led by Ryan Nettles who finished the game throwing for 257 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Turnovers have been an issue for Nettles and in this game it’s going to be important that they don’t turn the ball over. If the turnovers aren’t an issue they should be in good shape to come away with the victory.
On the other side of this matchup is the Arkansas Pine Bluff Golden Lions who have played two games so far this season and they were able to win both games. After beating Southern in the first game of the season, they looked good in the last game against Grambling State winning 48-21. In the last game against Arkansas Pine Bluff Skyler Perry was the star of the show throwing for 346 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. This is a team that still has defensive issue, but the real strength of this team is with the defense. In this game for Arkansas Pine Bluff it’s going to be about the offense running up the score, and trying to get this game to be a shootout.
I think Arkansas Pine Bluff is going to run up the score in this game, but I also believe Alabama State is going to run up the score also. Look for both teams to run up the score and for this game to go well over the posted total.
