Georgia Southern has had issues this season sitting with a 2-4 record, but they are being more competitive as of late. Two games ago, they beat Arkansas State 59-33 and in the last game against Troy they lost 27-24.

Georgia Southern is currently averaging 24.8 points while the defense is giving up 32.6 points. Under center is Justin Tomlin and he has rushed for 458 yards, zero touchdowns, and four interceptions.

On the other side of this matchup is the South Alabama Jaguars who currently sit with a 3-2 record but they have lost two games in a row.
