Georgia State faces Arkansas State on Thursday, October 15th at Centennial Bank Stadium for week seven of NCAA football action.
Georgia State is coming into this game with a record of 1-1 overall and 0-1 in Sun Belt Conference play. Georgia State did not play in week six of the season, as the last game Georgia State played was on October 3rd. In that game, Georgia State took down East Carolina by the final score of 49-29. Georgia State's offense has performed well this season, as Georgia State is averaging 40.0 points per game through its first two games. Defensively Georiga State has struggled a bit, especially in the secondary. Georiga State has allowed an average of 257.5 yards through the air this season, and that will not bode well against an Arkansas State team that loves to air it out. If Georgia State stands a chance in this game on the road, the secondary will have to be a lot sharper.
Arkansas State is 2-2 this season and 0-1 in conference play. Arkansas State easily took down Central Arkansas by the final score of 50-27 in week six, as the offense excelled. Arkansas State's other win this season came against a power-five conference school in Kansas State, a huge win for this program. Arkansas State, as stated before, loves to throw the ball; Arkansas State averages 342.5 yards through the air per game. Look for Arkansas State to take advantage of a weak Georiga State secondary, as this game could get ugly if Georgia State does not figure out how to defend a lethal Arkansas State passing game. Arkansas State's defense has also not been the sharpest this season, as the team is allowing an average of 36.8 points per game to the opposition.
The total is set at 72 points for a reason. Both of these teams can put points on the board, but neither is the sharpest on the defensive end. I am going to take the over 72 here, as I expect an offensive shootout.
