The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns and Arkansas State Red Wolves are set to square off in primetime on Tuesday night in what should be a pretty entertaining game. The two schools appear to be evenly matched on paper, and with both teams averaging upwards of 31 points per game, there should be no shortage of offense in Jonesboro.
Rankings and records: Neither team comes into the game ranked, and the winner is unlikely to move into the top-25 regardless of the final outcome. That being said, with both teams already having four wins, a victory on Tuesday night would go a long way towards assuring a bowl game in 2013.
Arkansas State has won the last two meetings, including 50-27 in Lafayette last season.
Vegas: Louisiana-Lafayette opened as six-point favorites, though most lines have dropped to three points.
Weather: It'll be a chilly night for football in Jonesboro with temperatures in the low-50s by kickoff.
Three names to know
Terrance Broadway: The Ragin' Cajuns tend to go as their quarterback takes them. Broadway is having a fine season so far, throwing for 1,243 yards, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions.
Jamal Robinson: Robinson is Broadway's favorite target down the field, and his numbers reflect it. He's hauled in a team-high 26 passes for 436 yards and six touchdowns.
David Oku: Arkansas State likes to run the football, and Oku leads the way with 101 carries for 396 yards and five touchdowns.
Two things at stake
In a battle of two teams without a loss in conference play -- Louisiana-Lafayette is 2-0 against Sun Belt foes while ASU is 1-0 -- a win this evening would go a long way towards winning the conference title.
After a couple of tough losses to start the season, the Ragin' Cajuns are riding a four-game winning streak. If they're able to invade Arkansas and come away with another road win, it would be a statement win for Mark Hudspeth's program.
