The Eagles use two different quarterbacks in their offense: Kevin Ellison with 998 total yards, 8 total touchdowns, and 3 interceptions, and Favian Upshaw with 538 total yards, 2 total touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. Matt Breida is the leading rusher for Georgia Southern with 1308 yards and 14 touchdowns. Bj Johnson is the leading receiver for Georgia Southern with 180 yards. The Georgia Southern defense is giving up 22.8 points per game with 340.8 yards per game. Georgia Southern’s defense has 16 sacks, 8 fumble recoveries, and 14 interceptions.

South Alabama doesn’t have a very good defense, which doesn’t look good for them against the best rushing attack in the country.
South Alabama is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. South Alabama is 2-9 ATS in their last 11 conference games. The over is 8-3-1 in South Alabama’s last 12 games. Georgia Southern is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games. Georgia Southern is 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games on grass. The under is 4-0 in Georgia Southern’s last 4 games.
The Georgia Southern rushing attack will have another good day against a bad defense and should put up big numbers here. However, I think South Alabama will be able to score enough to keep this within three touchdowns. I am taking South Alabama.
