The Ball State Cardinals will play the Georgia Southern Eagles in a non-conference game on Saturday night at Allen E. Paulson Stadium in Statesboro, Georgia.

The Ball State Cardinals are 1-2 this season after they defeated Murray State by a score of 31-0 in their last game. Ball State dominated Murray State in this game and outgained them by a total of 476-155. The Ball State offense is averaging 23.7 points per game with 262.3 passing yards per game and 159.7 rushing yards per game. John Paddock has thrown for 787 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions for the Cardinals this season. Carson Steele has rushed for 315 yards and two scores, while Jayshon Jackson has caught 18 passes for 209 yards and one touchdown for Ball State. The Ball State defense is giving up 32 points per game and 387 yards per game.

The Georgia Southern Eagles are 2-1 this season after losing to UAB by a score of 35-21 in Week 3. Georgia Southern actually outgained UAB in this game by five yards, but turned the ball over three times in the loss. The Georgia Southern offense is averaging 41.7 points per game with 326.7 passing yards per game and 194.7 rushing yards per game. Kyle Vantrease has thrown for 980 yards, six touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Eagles this season.

The Georgia Southern defense is allowing 28 points per game and 412.7 yards per game.

Ball State is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following an ATS win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 September games. The under is 13-6 in Ball State’s last 19 games. Georgia Southern is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games. The under is 12-5 in Georgia Southern’s last 17 home games.

Georgia Southern was unable to ride the momentum of their win at Nebraska and lost last week to UAB. Ball State got their first win of the season, after losing to Western Michigan and Tennessee in their previous games. Despite their loss, Georgia Southern played well and they are the better team here. I like the Eagles to get a double-digit win in this game.
