The Appalachian State Mountaineers are the better team and should be favored, but we’re getting free points with a Georgia Southern team that needs a victory. Georgia Southern goes to a bowl game for the fifth time in school history with a victory here. This is also senior night for a roster that has 29 seniors. And while the defense isn’t good, Georgia Southern can put up points and has a top-10 passing offense in the country. The motivation is there for the Georgia Southern Eagles. I’ll grab the free points.
