The Georgia State Panthers look for another victory after shocking Tennessee on the road as a 26-point underdog. The Georgia State Panthers have lost four of their last five home games. Dan Ellington is completing 45.8 percent of his passes for 139 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Ellington has two or more touchdown passes in three of his last six games.

These games are always tricky, as it's a clear letdown spot for the Georgia State Panthers, coming off arguably the biggest win in school history and the biggest upset of opening weekend. Then again, if Georgia State was able to do that against Tennessee, you have to think the ability to beat up on Furman is there as well. As long as the Georgia State Panthers don't get fat and happy, they win this game comfortably and improve to 2-0 on the season both SU and ATS.
