TEXAS A&M over UL-Lafayette by 28

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

UL-Lafayette was ripped apart by a Hur­ri­cane last week­end – and her name wasn’t Irma. It was Tulsa, and the Ca­juns ought to be Ra­gin’ af­ter giv­ing up 66 points and 667 yards in that sober­ing loss. Yes, while we re­spect ULL head coach Mark Hud­speth’s suc­cess on the field, along with his 16-9 ATS ef­fort as a road dog, we refuse to get be­hind a de­fense that’s al­low­ing 57 points and 591 yards per con­test this sea­son. What bet­ter time for em­bat­tled head coach Kevin Sum­lin to go tar­get shoot­ing. How hot is the seat Sum­lin is sit­ting on th­ese days? Aside from death threats and giv­ing away a cer­tain win over UCLA in the sea­son opener, he chose to kick a 26-yard field goal with 26 sec­onds re­main­ing in last week’s 24-14 win over non-de­script Ni­cholls State in a game that was tied at 14 apiece in the 4th quar­ter. Trans­la­tion: if he has any­thing left at all, he’ll bring it in this con­test. Oth­er­wise it will be RIP Kevin Sum­lin, as his cur­rent 1-9 ATS los­ing skein has emp­tied the seats – and the wal­lets - of more than a few boost­ers. Time for the Ag­gies to play big or go home.
