Georgia Southern (7-1) vs. ULM (4-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
With a dominant performance against Appalachian State in last week’s win, Georgia Southern now has control of the Sun Belt East … sort of.
ASU is still right there in the mix, and the date with Troy is still coming, but for now, the Eagles have been fantastic, with the only loss on the year coming to Clemson. Can the ULM defense stop the option?
Not a chance.
The Warhawks have been better, coming up with two straight wins including a strong performance against Coastal Carolina to stay in the mix for the West race. However, the run defense allowed over 300 yards in two straight games against Georgia State and Ole Miss, and they’ve allowed 19 rushing yards over the last six games.
Georgia Southern has cranked it up on the ground with 277 yards or more in four of the last five games as part of the five game winning streak. It’s able to keep control of the clock and games throughout, and it’s been amazing at owning the turnover margin.
The Eagles lead the nation in turnover margin and have only given the ball away three times. ULM doesn’t control the clock and loses the turnover battle way too often.
The Warhawk offense hasn’t been good enough, with QB Caleb Evans just okay, but not quite as good as expected.
The Eagles will get out of the road trip alive, hitting 300 yards on the ground, they’ll own the game throughout, and then it’s on, with Troy coming up next.
