Georgia Southern (1-3) vs. South Alabama (1-4) Game Preview
Why Georgia Southern Will Win
The Eagle option offense hasn’t been able to crank things up quite like it might like, but it’s still okay despite facing LSU and Minnesota on the road. It was decent against Louisiana, but it didn’t take over.
The South Alabama defense has been hit-or-miss so far against the run. It was able to stuff Nebraska, but it got ripped up by Memphis and had problems against UAB.
As a program, USA has lost its last ten games when allowing 200 yards or more. Georgia Southern won’t have a problem getting to the two-bill mark.
Defensively, there shouldn’t be too many issues against a struggling Jaguar offense without enough of a passing game to come up with anything big down the field. It’s just not accurate or efficient enough to keep things moving – the seven interceptions are a problem – but …
Why South Alabama Will Win
The Georgia Southern offense really isn’t working.
QB Shai Werts hasn’t quite been himself in a strange and trying first few weeks. there’s no taking advantage of any opportunities with the passing game, and the attack isn’t moving the chains.
The whole idea behind the attack is to set up easy third down chances to keep control of the clock and the defense off the field. Instead, the Eagles can’t convert on the money downs and it’s not holding the ball long enough.
The South Alabama defensive front are just good enough to handle what’s coming. They can handle the option with linebackers Nick Mobley and Ron Yancey leading a rising group.
The D is good at taking the ball away, and the Eagles are fumbling a bit too often. In a relatively even game, it should come down to the mistakes …
What’s Going To Happen
0-7. That’s what these two are against other FBS teams so far this season. At home, South Alabama will do just enough defensively to keep this close, and at home, it’ll be able to control the clock and stay in the game. However, the Eagles will get just enough third down stops and come up with just enough takeaways to finally get a decent victory.
