Sun Belt TONIGHT - Troy vs. UL-Lafayette
Posted Nov 7, 2013

Week 11 Fearless Prediction & Preview - Troy at Louisiana-Lafayette

Troy (5-4) at Louisiana-Lafayette (6-2) Nov. 7 7:30, ESPNU

Why You Should Give A Hoot: All of a sudden, it's Louisiana-Lafayette's Sun Belt title to lose. The Ragin' Cajuns are on a six-game winning streak keyed by wins over Western Kentucky and Arkansas State to set everything up for the manageable finishing kick. Georgia State won't be a problem, and ULM is a home game, so if ULL can get by this week's possible shootout, and can hold on at South Alabama, it'll have the championship all to itself.

Troy is coming off a wild loss to ULM, and now it's do-or-die needing to beat ULL to stay in the Sun Belt title chase. Getting bowl eligible would be nice, but it's going to take a few more wins to assure itself of a 13th game. Involved in fun game after fun game, the Trojans have been in six games decided by a touchdown or less, and last week it was alive in the 12-point loss to ULM.

What Will Happen: Troy has the best passing game in the Sun Belt by far, but ULL is No. 2. The difference will be a Ragin' Cajun secondary that is far, far better and should come up with its share of stops, while the ground game will balance things out against a Trojan defense that's been far better than the last few years, but can still be ripped apart.

Prediction: Louisiana-Lafayette 44 … Troy 35
