Southern takes care of business at home with more energetic fan base even though it's early in the year with new offense and defense. I'd like to see how that October 20 game falls on the schedule, considering GS consistently gets selected for the horrible Wednesday evening games. I would assume Southern would not have to travel to New Mexico State after a Saturday evening game unless the SBC (powers that be) truly wants us to fail vs a former conference member.

I'm predicting 3-1. Wow more wins than we had of all of last season.

It took our worst team ever for NMSU to finally beat us. I think we'll be ok.

But yea we seem to be getting the short end of the scheduling stick here recently.

I agree with 3-1 and hopefully a good showing at Clemson.

I spent a while thinking about maybe bolding Nebraska because I believe that is a very winnable game. But to keep my arguments consistent, don't see Nebraska without a BSU win 1st. Battle for top of MWC vs top of Sunbelt, home revenge game, and with the talent Troy fans they say they have coming back, this has got to be a must win if the SunBelt wants to say we are on par with more than just CUSA and MAC.


Boise St will be a Top15 team next year. I don't see us beating them with a new QB in game1. Nebraska will be improved with many starters returning, they will be favored.

RE: 2018 Must Win Non-conference
Here is the real Arkansas State non-conference story. We beat G5 opponents at home and lose to them on the road. We win every other bowl game. We only play guarantee games for $1.5 million and that means playing Auburn, Alabama, Oregon, etc. because lower tier P5s do not want to play us and cannot pay top dollar. Mizzou came to town in a rare appearance and if not for Knighten going down we likely win instead of losing by a TD.

2018 finally sets up well with UNLV in Jonesboro and Tulsa on the road. We should beat UNLV given our recent history and beating Tulsa on the road would break the cycle hopefully. Iowa State is playing a home and home in the near future so we should have a shot at a win vs a P5 (in name at least) when they come to JB.

The Near future as in 2025?

We've got SMU, Tulsa, and Memphis (2x) at home before we play a single game against the Cyclones.

Kentucky is paying ULM 1.6 million.

That is pretty near to me unless you don't plan on being around.

That is a lot for them I would think. I would LOVE to get UK, Vandy, Kansas, WF, Indiana and the like on the schedule.

If we can find that ‘early season Hansen’, and somehow find a way to keep him at the top of his game, we will only lose one game.
If the same Hansen that finished the year shows up, SEMO isn’t a sure win.

Heavy, heavy, emphasis on the "SHOULD".

You guys don't exactly have the best track record OOC.

They could easily go 1-3.

...And then, run the Sun Belt.

We've done it before.
