My Prediction: A couple of hot teams meet tonight in Mobile, Alabama. Arkansas State was won 9 in a row and Northern Illinois has won 8 in a row. The Red Wolves are actually one of the best spread teams in the Nation having covered the number in 10 of their 12 games. This should be a high scoring affair. Arkansas State is very good at stopping the run and that’s what makes the Huskies offense go. I think the edge goes to the Red Wolves based on a better defense.
