Gameday: South Alabama at Tulane
South Alabama and Tulane will kickoff at 2:30pm in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana today.
I think it’s unfair to say this is a must-win for the Jaguars, but if they have had a must-win game in their short 5 year history, this would be one. They had Southern Utah in hand in the fourth quarter last week and let it slip away. This week they travel to a team that is arguably a fairly evenly matched team as a seven point underdog.
Head coach Joey Jones and his staff has put the players through a tough, hard nosed week of practice to get them ready to prove that they are not going to go down without a fight. They are not going to let last weeks disappointment linger over them for the season. That is why this game is so important. How will they respond after last weeks loss?
This game may determine how they approach upcoming games against Western Kentucky, Tennessee and Troy in the weeks following today’s game.
Keys to the game is the Jaguar defense. Can the defensive line get more pressure on Tulane quarterback Nick Montana? Will the secondary play better this week and prevent big plays?
Offensively can the Jags produce more points? When they have a negative play how will they respond? Will they let that stall the drive or will they find a way keep the drive going?
We’ll see you in the Superdome! Go Jags! Beat Tulane!
