NEW ORLEANS - Arkansas State has previously won the Sun Belt football championship title four times and could make it a fifth with a win over New Mexico State this upcoming Saturday. The Red Wolves (7-3, 6-0 Sun Belt) would be guaranteed no worse than a tie of the championship should they defeat the Aggies (3-7, 3-3 Sun Belt). And while the Red Wolves have won six consecutive games, the Aggies are winners of three straight themselves.
