The Georgia State Panthers and Troy Trojans face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The Georgia State Panthers sit with a 1-2 record but don’t let that fool you, this is a team that is pretty good. This is a team that lost to Louisiana Lafayette by only three points, and in the last game against Arkansas State they only lost by seven points. In the last game, Georgia State was banged up but their offense still managed to score 52 points, but the defense could use some improvement after giving up 59 points. On the season the Panthers are averaging 44 points per game while the defense is giving up 40.7 points per game. Quarterback Cornelious Brown IV has been good under center throwing for 748 yards, seven touchdowns, and three interceptions.
On the other side of this matchup is the Troy Trojans who have found success this season with their only loss coming against a very good BYU team. Even with the success there has to be some concern after their last game against Eastern Kentucky they were 30 point favorites but they could only manage to win by two points. The defense gave up 29 points and in this game against a good offense, the defense is going to need to be a lot better.On the season Troy is averaging 30.5 points per game while the defense is giving up 27 points per game. Quarterback, Gunnar Nelson has had a big year throwing for 1081 yards, nine touchdowns, and three interceptions.
Georgia State is 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games played on turf. Georgia State is 2-11-2 against the spread in their last 15 road games. The over is 7-2 in Georgia State’s last nine games in October.
Who is going to win this game is a true toss up, but one thing's for sure about this game, there is going to be plenty of scoring. Georgia State is going to score but they also won’t stop the Troy offense. Look for this game to fly well over the total.
