Game Time: 7:30 pm
Venue: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GA
Can Arkansas State keep the momentum going and really and truly stay in the Sun Belt title chase?
The Red Wolves are still unbeaten in conference play, thanks to a nice three-game home winning streak, but this begins a run of four of the last five games on the road. There’s no Appalachian State to deal with, but the showdown at Troy is coming up quickly.
What’s been the difference ever since the stunning and disastrous loss to Central Arkansas? The defense has played better, and the passing has been okay, but it’s the improvement in the running game that’s turned around the season with 765 yards in the last three games – and 343 yards against Georgia Southern – after running for 323 total yards in the previous four games.
Georgia State has been tough, but its hopes to realistically go bowling, and potentially step up in the Sun Belt chase, were gone in last week’s 13-10 loss at South Alabama.
The Panthers have an erratic offense, but the secondary and the pass defense has been fantastic.
What’s been the problem? The Georgia State run defense has been rocky, allowing 217 yards per game. With quarterback Conner Manning banged up, the Panthers aren’t going to be able to overcome the ASU ground game.
