1. College Football News Preview 2020: Georgia Southern Eagles Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
This is how it’s supposed to work.
Georgia Southern should’ve been a little bit sharper and a little bit better last year, but even though not everything worked perfectly, it was still a 7-6 campaign with a bowl appearance and a college football-altering win over Appalachian State.
There’s still a place in the world for a well-run option offense, and head coach Chad Lunsford has the parts coming back to be even stronger.
The offensive line is full of veterans, the backfield is fantastic, and everything else flows from there.
Set the Georgia Southern regular season win total line at … 7.5
The team is in place to not only have a shot at beating Appalachian State again, but it should be good enough to win the East and the Sun Belt.
The Mountaineers have to make the trip to Statesboro, as does Troy, but going to Louisiana and Georgia State should both be dangerous. This year, though, going on the road might not mean much, and the option attack is always the great equalizer.
Throw in missing Arkansas State from the Sun Belt slate – at least for now – and this should be a third straight fantastic year under Lunsford.
