GASO -11.5 Total 48
The Eagles are coming into this game with quite a few losses on the year, but they are also coming in as the favored team in the game. The difference is the Eagles compared to their opponent has managed to be close in their losses compared to what the Jaguars have been able to do on the season. What else is interesting is the fact that neither one of these teams has a defense to really speak of on the year.
The Jaguars are coming into the game here with a record that has only 1 win and that win came against Jacksonville State and it was in week 2. Since that loss the Jaguars have only managed to score a total of 26 points over 3 games and have not really shown up defensively either as the team has allowed over a hundred points in that same span.
The Eagles are coming into the game with an offense that has managed to get only 21.3 points a game. The team has only managed to pass the ball for 49.8 yards a game, but has ran the ball for 201.8 yards a game. The defense for the Eagles is giving up 36.3 points per game. Defensively they are allowing 277.8 yards a game in the air, but are giving up 135.5 yards a game on the ground.
South Alabama is heading into the game with an anemic offense that is getting only 16.8 points a game. The passing attack is getting 140 yards a game, but the rushing offense has managed to get only 193.4 yards a game. The defense for the Jaguars has managed to keep the opponents to 31.2 points a game, but the defense is giving up 223.6 yards a game in the air and 179 yards per game on the ground.
The South Alabama team has not really been able to play great offensively and it will show up in this game here. However, the Jaguars defense is also a problem for the team as well. The Eagles are missing a passing attack on the year and that will make it very difficult for the team to come from behind, but the good news is the rushing attack will take advantage of a fairly weak rushing defense and bring home a strong win on the game here. Final Score, Georgia Southern Eagles win, but do not cover 24-16.
