Many believed South Alabama would be an elite Sun Belt team going into the season. The Jaguars have a chance to prove they are by going back above .500 this week.
South Alabama (3-3, 1-1 Sun Belt) is hosting Southern Miss (1-5, 0-3) at 7:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile, Alabama.

Southern Miss vs. South Alabama Prediction
I’m picking South Alabama to win but for Southern Miss to cover the spread at +17.5. I also anticipate the game will go Over 53.5 total points.
I don’t believe the Golden Eagles are as bad as their record might indicate. They’re on a five-game losing streak, but a few of those contests have been pretty competitive. I can see them finding the end zone a few times and keeping this week’s matchup close.
South Alabama quarterback Carter Bradley and the Jaguars might have to score 40 or more points to win. But I think their offense is capable of doing just that.
