Georgia Southern Eagles

The Georgia Southern Eagles hope to ride on the momentum of their recent win against New Mexico. It was the third win-in-a-row for the Eagles who now sport a 2-1 record. Georgia Southern is expected to rely on its running game against the Mountaineers. They average 260 yards per game on the ground and are the number one rushing offense in the country. However, they need to add some spice on the offensive end. Their passing game is practically non-existent, something that could boost their cause. They also need to improve on their defense. Though decent, they showed problems stopping the running game of the Aggies last time out.

Appalachian State Mountaineers

There seems to be no stopping the surging Appalachian State Mountaineers who remain undefeated. The team is coming off a big win over the Jags of South Alabama, 30-3, and it appears the run will continue. The offense of App State is something that is expected to overwhelm the opposition. App State boasts of one of the best offensive in the league right now, averaging 41 points per game. Aside from that, they also have a good running game. App State is averaging 244.1 yards per game, adding to the woes of Georgia Southern. Defensively, it appears that the Eagles will be in for a rude awakening. They are allowing opponents only 19 points per game this season. Everything seems to be humming for the Mountaineers, a big reason why they are the favorites to prevail.
