Georgia Southern (8-3) vs. Georgia State (2-9) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Georgia Southern might be out of the Sun Belt title chase after losing two straight before bouncing back against Coastal Carolina, but it’s going bowling, it can still finish with a terrific ten-win season, and it can take out its rival.
Georgia State might have struggled in a lousy season with just one win over an FBS team, but beat Georgia Southern, and that would be more fun than any bowl victory. At least, that’s what the team has to believe.
Can the Panthers stop the run? Not really. They’ve allowed over 200 yards in five of the last six games, and now they have to deal with an option attack that can stall at odd times – and did way too often over the second half of the season – but when it’s on, forget it.
7-0 when coming up with 200 yards, the Eagles aren’t just great when they’ve got the machine going; they’re not making big mistakes, either. They lead the nation in turnover margin after only giving the ball away five times. Georgia State isn’t going to come up with enough stops, and they’re not going to generate the takeaways needed to pull this off.
