The Georgia State Panthers and Coastal Carolina Chanticleers face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Brooks Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020 it was Coastal Carolina that won 51-0.
The Georgia State Panthers come into this game with a 4-5 record and they are coming off a 21-17 loss against Louisiana. Georgia State was competitive in that game, but they were outscored 14-7 in the 4th quarter and that led to the defeat. Georgia State is averaging 23.1 points while the defense is giving up 29.1 points per game. Under center for Georgia State is Darrien Grainger who has thrown for 1,022 yards, 12 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Six different players have rushed for at least 100 yards and they are going to need to control the pace of this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers who sit with an 8-1 record overall but there are a ton of questions heading into this game. Starting quarterback Grayson McCall could be out for the season and that is a big loss for the team. Bryce Carpenter has stepped in and in the last game, he completed 13 of his 20 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. Coastal Carolina is averaging 42.6 points while their defense is giving up 17.3 points per game. The Chanticleers are a run-first team, averaging 229.1 yards per game on the ground.
Georgia State is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall. Coastal Carolina is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against teams with a losing record. The under is 5-2 in Georgia State’s last seven games in October.
Georgia State looked good in the last game against Louisiana, and I expect much of the same in this game. Georgia State can load up the box against the run and they are going to slow that down enough to keep this game close. Back Georgia State against the spread.
