The Georgia Southern Eagles and Texas State Bobcats face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at TSU Bobcat Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020 it was Georgia Southern won 40-38.
The Georgia Southern Eagles come into this game with a 2-7 record overall and they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against Coastal Carolina they gave up 28 points but the offense could only manage eight points, and that led to the defeat. Georgia Southern is averaging 20.6 points while the defense is giving up 31.8 points per game. Justin Tomlin and Cam Ransom both played at quarterback in the last game, and both players will probably play some snaps in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Texas State Bobcats who sit with a 3-6 record overall but they are coming off a win against Louisiana-Monroe. In that game the defense gave up only 19 points and that led to the victory. Texas State is averaging 22.4 points while their defense is giving up 33.4 points per game. Under center for Texas State is Brady McBride and he has thrown for 1,507 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. If they want to get the job done in this game, he needs to take better care of the ball.
Georgia Southern is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games as an underdog. Texas State is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games. The over is 11-4 in the Eagles last 15 games in November. The over is 5-2 in Texas State’s last seven home games.
Texas State’s defense was strong in the last game and their defense is going to be strong again in this game. I don’t trust the Georgia Southern defense and their lack of scoring is going to be the difference in this one. Back Texas State against the spread.
