The Georgia Southern Eagles and Arkansas Razorbacks face off on Saturday in a Week 3 college football showdown at Razorback Stadium.

Georgia Southern sits with a 1-1 record, and it’s been quite the opposite games. To start the season, Georgia Southern beat Gardner-Webb 30-25. In the last game though, Georgia Southern’s offense really struggled giving up 38 points, and the offense could only manage six points. Georgia Southern isn’t an elite throwing team, but in the last game they struggled to run the ball too. Cam Ransom was the top rusher finishing with 41 yards on nine carries. Georgia Southern is averaging 252 yards per game on the ground, and if they want any chance in this game the offense is going to need to be good. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Arkansas Razorbacks who sit with a 2-0 record. Arkansas opened up with a 38-17 victory over Rice but the real impressive victory was over Texas in their last game. Arkansas has leaned on an offense that is averaging 422 yards per game. In the last game against Texas, KJ Jefferson completed 14 of his 19 passes for 138 yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception. He also rushed ten times for 73 yards. The leading rusher was Trelon Smith and he had 12 carries for 75 yards and a touchdown. 

Georgia Southern is 6-0 against the spread in their last six games against teams with a winning record. Arkansas is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in September. The under is 7-2 in Georgia Southern’s last nine non-conference games. The under is 6-2 in Arkansas last eight home games. 

Georgia Southern finds success against teams with a winning record, and they are going to find a way to keep this game close. I expect Georgia Southern will find success running the ball, and that will help burn the clock too. Georgia Southern will cover the spread.
