I guess the Georgia Southern Eagles are the better team here, but the bottom line is neither of these teams play much defense, and neither team has been able to find consistent success this season. Georgia Southern has a top-5 passing attack in the country, and that’s probably where the edge is. However, the Eagles are 129th in total defense, 112th in scoring defense and can’t stop the run. This should be a back and forth contest. I’ll grab the free points and cover my eyes.
