2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Over'
The Red Wolves were an 8-5 team last year and are coming off a 23-20 bowl win over Ball State. But that was last year. After four straight winning seasons the Red Wolves will have a new head coach this year and the bright spot isthat they will have an experienced defense on the field. Last year the Red Wolves only lost one conference road game and if they have continued success winning away from Centennial Bank Stadium they could go bowling again.
The main cause of their success last year was the defense. This season the Red Wolves "D" is bring back eight returning starters and will again be a strength. Defense will have to carry them because not only are the Red Wolves breaking in a new head coach but also new starting quarterbackFrediKnighten Jr.
The Red Wolves have a brutal first four games as they open up with Montana State (not a push over) but then they go on the road to play Tennessee and Miami. Oh yeah, then the Utah State Aggies will be at Jonesboro before a bye week. At least the Red Wolves close out the season with threeof their last four games at home.
I think that seven is the right number for Arkansas State this year and I wouldn't touch this season win total. I'm hearing nothing but good things about Knighten Jr. and spring practice looked really good for the Red Wolves defense. That is why I tend to lean on the 'over'. If Arkansas State can find a way to win road games again at USF and win their first home game against Montana State then I see the Red Wolves being a competitive team in the Sun Belt. If they start the season off 0-4 then I see the wheels possibly falling off.
