The Georgia State Panthers will head down to Baton Rouge to face the LSU Tigers in non-conference action this weekend from Tiger Stadium on ESPN2.

Georgia State Panthers Preview 

Georgia State fell to 6-4 after losing to Appalachian State in Atlanta, 42-14. The Panthers were held scoreless for three quarters versus the Mountaineers, and they could be in for another long night here in Death Valley. The Georgia St. offense is scoring 30.4 ppg, while passing for 224.0 ypg, rushing for 191.1 ypg, and converting 50.4% of their third downs.

GSU Player Notes

Darren Grainger leads GSU in passing with 1,986 yards, with 14 touchdowns to five interceptions, despite a pair of tough home outings against JMU and App State. 

Senior back Marcus Carroll surpassed the 100-yard mark for seventh time this season last weekend, and he’s one of the nation’s leaders in rushing with 1,206 yards on 244 carries.

Junior wideout Robert Lewis found the endzone last weekend, and he leads the team in receptions (52) and receiving yards (727).

The Georgia State defense is allowing 28.8 points per game.


LSU Tigers Preview

LSU moved to 7-3 after defeating Florida at home, 52-35. The Tigers put another strong offensive effort on display, and they’ll look to tack on their eighth win this weekend. The LSU offense is scoring 44.8 ppg, while passing for 337.7 ypg, rushing for 210.7 ypg, and converting 55.6% of their third downs.

LSU Player Notes

Jayden Daniels leads LSU in passing with 3,164 yards, with 30 touchdowns to four interceptions, after having arguably the best start of his career that saw him total 606 yards of offense and account for five touchdowns. 

Logan Diggs has scored in four of the last five games, and he leads the RB room in rushing with 635 yards on 113 touches.

Malik Nabers hit the century mark for the seventh time in eight games in the win over Florida, and he leads the team in receptions (72) and receiving yards (1,284). 

The LSU defense is allowing 28.9 points per game.


Georgia State vs Louisiana State Trends

GSU is 5-5 against the spread, with a 5-5 O/U record. 

LSU is 6-3 ATS, with a 9-0 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Jayden Daniels had one of the best college performances we’ve ever seen last weekend, and it’s unlikely the Panthers will have the answers. Georgia State hasn’t looked like themselves since a road loss to Georgia Southern, and an uphill battle here will likely lead to a fourth straight loss. This one could look a lot like LSU’s dominant home win over Army, so let’s back a big game from them here in Death Valley. The Tigers’ positive Over trend will have a chance to hit the 10-0 mark here as well.
