Red Wolves Howling for Tigers in Football

Another team will be coming across the River Saturday to play the Tigers in Football, the tackle kind...

Arkansas State is coming in with a full head of steam and a 3-and-1 record after taking care of Middle Tennessee State in a Sun Belt Conference tilt in Jonesboro.

The Red Wolves also know how to win on the road, having upset Texas A&M at College Station in their first game of the Season.

Arkansas State has improved its' running game...but Tigers Head Coach Tommy West says the offensive load falls on Quarterback Corey Leonard...and, West says, Leonard is more than capable of handling it.

Says West:

"That quarterback, he's definitely the one that makes them go..and He's really good now, because he can throw it, and run it when they need him to. He can catch you in 7-technique and do what he has to do to help them win... He can run and he throws it good."

Expect the Liberty Bowl to be Howling with A-State fans after the school sold out its' allotment of tickets and asked for more.

Game Time Saturday 1pm.
