Georgia State vs Georgia Southern Game Preview
Why Georgia State Will Win
The passing game has been on as part of an offense that’s kicked it all into high gear.
The running game has been terrific over the last five games – hitting 267 yards or more in four of the last five – but Darren Grainger has thrown for 430 yards and six touchdowns with no picks in the last two wins.
Georgia Southern has been better with the passing attack, but that’s because it hasn’t been strong enough at its day job. When the running game is rolling, everything is fine.

What’s Going To Happen
It’s a good rivalry game that often defies logic and reason, but Georgia State should be able to bomb at will on the beleaguered Georgia Southern secondary.
The Eagles have allowed 330 passing yards or more in five of the seven games and gave up way over 200 in the other two. Even so, for the first time all year Georgia State will play in a relatively tight game – again, rivalry.
