The Jaguar football team continues to prepare for their game against Arkansas State on Saturday. A number of issues are being addressed including mistakes and penalties that have hampered the team most of the season.

The offense went against the scout team defense with the defense doing the same thing against the scout team offense. Both squads continue to try to prepare for what they will see in Jonesboro.

“It was pretty good,” head coach Joey Jones said. “I thought we were a little bit tired this morning. We fought through it and I thought had a good practice, but we’ve got to sharpen up the things that are going to happen in the game and sharpen up the gameplan. We’ve got another day to work on it and hopefully we can get that done.”

The Jags will return to the practice field on Thursday morning for their final practice before the game.

Several Red Wolf players will take the field in Jonesboro to face off with their home-town team. Three players from Mobile are on the team with 14 in all from the state of Alabama.

Additionally Kendall Houston participated in spring practice with Arkansas State before transferring to South Alabama.

To speak of the difficulty of South Alabama’s schedule this season, two of South Alabama’s previous opponents are still unbeaten, Texas-San Antonio and Mississippi State are both 5-0. NC State is 4-2 and coming off an upset of Florida State, who many thought would contend for a spot in the national championship game.
