JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - It’s Media Monday at Arkansas State.

They’re hoping for treats instead of tricks Saturday as Troy comes to the neighborhood for Halloween. The 3-3 Red Wolves are looking to regroup after being blown out at Appalachian State.

Here’s Blake Anderson’s take on the Trojans: “Same as I expected. They’re always going to have a quarterback that can throw it around. And I know that they have some injury issues there. But the backup came in and threw it pretty dang good as well. So that’ll be interesting to see. Chip Lindsey wants to throw the ball, he’s an air raid tempo guy. Presents a little different problem to what we’ve just seen the last 2 weeks, with teams that are primarily huddle, built around the run. And then what comes off the run, so that’s going to be a different challenge for our defense. They got really good receivers, they’re built a lot more like us offensively than the last 2 teams we’ve seen. Now the good thing is our defense plays against us every day. We do look a lot alike. But at the same time, our inexperience over there and the mistakes we’re making, that could get bad on Saturday if we’re not where we need to be.“

A-State takes on Troy Saturday afternoon at 2:00pm. You can watch the game online on ESPN3 or on the ESPN app.
