Yet another team Wood coached against last season. Nice advantage to have. Troy won 27-10.

It's been said Gore got into it with Hall on the sideline last week. Will be interesting to see his use this week.

No it doesn’t. Our D is saving us. Horton isn’t the answer—neither is our play calling so far.

Only the scripted drives look good.

Should have kicked the FG in the first half.

Good win! Rest Pratt vs. Nicholls so he's fresh for UAB.

Unimpressive but decisive. Winning on the road with a backup QB is hard.

Yes right thing to do. Frankly Looks like he may be in Coach's doghouse. Hearing he did not want to come out against South Alabama when he got hurt. That is why Coach looked irritated in interviews this week emphasizing that he alone will make the decision when Pratt is ready to return. Then Hall kind of referred to Pratt's attitude about playing at all costs if possible.

Final: ULALA 41, UAB 21 - so the UAB game looks very good for the return of Michael Pratt. 👍🏻

This sure helps our resume.

Been looking at other scores to see who might be our biggest challengers for the NY6 bowl, assuming we were to win out.

Fresno State is 3-0 and just beat Arizona St 29-0, @ASU.

Air Force is 3-0 but they really haven't played anyone yet.

James Madison is 3-0, and has now beaten both Virginia and Troy on the road.

Liberty is 3-0 and has a remaining schedule even easier than ours.

Georgia State is 3-0, but they have Troy, Old Dominion, App State and LSU on their schedule.

I agree, totally different than last years scheme, or lack there of....now on offense, I am less than impressed, with the O's plan for a backup QB....there seems to be zero rythmn, Horton seem to do very well with the plays that were "scripted", but in between, the OC did not seem to have any type of plan and as we all know the "P" method needs to be adhered to.

Pratt makes plays and that’s what’s missing.

First thing, a win is a win (sound like a Kamala statement). But our D is exceptional and I believe we are running a “basic” O with Horton. USM plugged our running but if Pratt doesn’t play, I’d like to see more “open” style O with Horton. He needs play time to get better. I believe he’ll get there. One at a time—one at a time. It’s always great to wake up Sunday knowing you have won🏈

TPS... I think Horton has the abilities to "make plays' but has been told "not to take chances" since we ain't go nobody else to take a snap...but a W is a W, just ask "bama
