Three different GSU receivers recorded receptions in a very run heavy offense. Wesley Fields led the Georgia Southern grinding ground game with 148 yards and a pair of touchdowns while Monteo Garrett and Logan Wright combined for another 147 yards with each finding the end zone.

Georgia State are 0-5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games in November and are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games on turf.
Georgia State will get a heavy dose of the run and I don’t think the Eagles will throw ten times…
