Georgia State comes into this game on a three game winning streak, but all three wins have come against teams with a losing record. Georgia Southern almost beat Georgia two weeks ago, but fell just short. Georgia Southern’s rushing attack is very strong and I think they will have another big game in this one. I am picking Georgia Southern to win in a blowout.
