The Braves have been prone to fumbles and are minus-seven in turnover margin. Their defensive leader is Anderson, but the unit isnt nearly as strong as the last two championship seasons.

In that matchup, Tigers QB Kincade was 30 of 42 for 400 yards and five touchdowns. Hes been spectacular in his first season since a transfer from Mississippi, but hes working with terrific skills position players in WR Williams and RBs Carter and Jestin Kelly (741 yards, 8 TDs). The Tigers have allowed 24 sacks, so Alcorn pass rushers will go after Kincade. The defense features five All-SWAC first-team selections, including S Guy Stallworth and LB Arkez Cooper, who both have a team-high 58 tackles, and DT Donovan McCray, the conferences defensive player of the year. The Tigers, whose only loss was to Arizona, rank first in the SWAC in scoring offense (44 ppg), scoring defense (16.4 ppg), total offense (507.6 ypg) and total defense (323.6 ypg).
