Keys To The Game: UL Monroe
1. Time of Possession Texas State leads the conference in time of possession, even after last week's clock management against Louisiana Lafayette. The 'Cats had the ball for less time in the entire 2nd half than ULL Lafayette had in the first quarter. The O-line needs to give Tyler Jones some quality time so he can extend drives and take pressure off of the defense. This all starts with Running Backs Robert Lowe and Chris Nutall at the forefront of the ground attack. Texas State should look for two 60-70 yard backs this week and help Mike Orakpo and his defense rest on the sideline. Goal: Lead in T.O.P. and get run game started early 2. Stop the Passing Game Giving up 4 TD's and 335 yards through the air isn't going to cut it for the Texas State secondary. Everyone in the secondary has shared the interceptions, with 4 players having a pick each. Linebacker David Mayo, has two so far but shouldn't have pressure on him to stop the aerial attack. UL Monroe loses the turnover ratio by nearly 2 every game. This means that the defense has to capitalize when the opportunity comes. Goal: 2 Interceptions
