Argos aiming to move up in Gulf South Conference

When the University of West Florida football team takes the field Saturday against West Alabama, it will be in a position to move into at least a tie for second place in the Gulf South Conference.

Beating the Tigers on their own field won’t be easy. West Alabama is No. 25 in the nation, ranked second in Super Region 2 and has lost only one game in conference play. Its other loss was to Division I Samford by eight points.

The Argos come in at 5-2 overall and are 3-2 in the conference. The Tigers are 6-2 and 5-1 in the GSC and rolled to a 45-21 win over UWF last season.

UWF has put up 400-plus yards of offense in its last two games and has gone over the 100-yard mark in rushing four times in the last five games.

UWA is putting up nearly 450 yards per outing and allowing 354. It has three running backs with more than 300 yards, including Lakenderic Thomas, who has rushed for 520 yards and nine touchdowns.

Harry Satterwhite has completed close to 70 percent of his passes and has thrown for 2,130 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Terry Samuel leads the defense with 69 tackles.

UWF is 10-8 all-time in program history, including a 6-4 mark on the road. With a win Saturday, the Argos would top their win total from their inaugural season in 2016.
