Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Georgia Southern Eagles and Georgia State Panthers face off on Saturday in a Week 6 college football showdown at Turner Field. In 2021 it was Georgia State that secured the 21-14 victory. 

Georgia Southern comes into this game with a 3-2 record overall but they were defeated in the last game. Against Coastal Carolina they were outscored 20-13 and that led to the 34-30 defeat. Quarterback Kyle Vantrease completed 26 of his 43 passes for 284 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Running back Jalen White had a big game finishing with 18 carries for 145 yards and a touchdown. This is the same Georgia Southern team that beat Nebraska earlier in the season. Georgia Southern is averaging 37.8 points while their defense is giving up 28.2 points per game.

On the other side of this matchup is Georgia State who sits with a 1-4 record overall but their one win came in the last game. Georgia State gave up only 14 points to the Army Black Nights and secured the easy victory. Under center for Georgia State is Darren Grainger and he completed 8 of his 12 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown. Georgia State is a run-first team and they had two rushers who went over 105 yards in the last game. Tucker Gregg finished with 16 carries for 124 yards and a touchdown. Georgia State is averaging 27.6 points while their defense is giving up 33.4 points per game. 

Georgia Southern is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games. Georgia State is 9-1 against the spread in their last 10 games following a straight-up win. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings played between the two teams. The favorite is 4-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between the Eagles and Panthers. 

Georgia State looked impressive in the last game, but I think this game is going to be one that Georgia Southern finds success with. Vantrease has had a ton of success this season, and he is going to find success against the Georgia State defense. I will take the points to be safe with Georgia Southern, but I think they pull the upset. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
