Arkansas State keys to the game versus South Alabama

Keys to the game for the Arkansas State Red Wolves

 AState’s keys against South Alabama Saturday night at Centennial Bank Stadium on ESPN3.

PASS RUSH. AState is 115th in sacks and 82nd in opponent pass completion percentage. Pass defense starts up front with pressure. USA is in the top half of the nation pass completion percentage.

GET HANSEN IN THE RUN GAME. As Justice Hansen becomes more comfortable with the offense, adding the element of the QB draw or a keeper around the end adds another level of complexity for defenses to deal with.

BALL PROTECTION. AState has had too many forced errors the past three games. This is one area AState needs to play like it did to the start the season.

GET TURNOVERS. Last year a number of close games became comfortable wins because of turnovers.
