The Citadel came into the season picked to finish fourth in the Southern Conference. It dropped a 42-28 final at Mercer in the season-opener two weeks ago, which was a disappointing start.
The Western Carolina Catamounts who have played three games so far this spring and they have lost all three games. In two of the three games, Western Carolina only scored seven points, and the offense needs to be better.
Senior quarterback Brandon Rainey played during the fall season, but it has been sophomore quarterback Jaylan Adams at the helm over the last two weeks. He completed 9 of 15 attempts for 75 yards against Mercer, but he went just 3 of 6 for 27 yards last week.

The Citadel vs Western Carolina Game Preview
It’s been a rough run so far with a disappointing loss to Mercer when the defense broke down early and the three turnovers were a killer, and last week an overtime loss to Chattanooga made this a must win.
Western Carolina, though, has bigger issues with an offense that can’t keep the chains moving and with a turnover problem in blowout after blowout, losing its first three games by a combined score of 120-41.
Citadel runs the ball, Western Carolina can’t stop the run, and the two parts are going to make for an ugly game. Expect the Bulldogs to have the ball for over 35 minutes with close to 300 rushing yards.
