Waldo Stadium and the Western Michigan Broncos host the Georgia Southern Eagles in week four.

While many expected the Georgia Southern Eagles to roll over visiting Louisiana-Monroe as a 27 point favorite, the team will have to settle for a23-21 victory and a nice 3-0 record. GSU held a 438-350 edge in yards and controlled the clock with over 38 minutes of possession.  True to form the Eagles didn’t throw often of well with quarterback Favian Upshaw going 4-14 for 64 yards with BJ Johnson recording four receptions for 59 yards. Georgia Southern’s ground game was balanced with LA Ramsby totaling 86 yards on 14 totes followed by Wesley Fields with 84 yards and a touchdown while Matt Breida and Upshaw combined for 138 yards on 28 carries.

T{he Western Michigan Broncos are off to a perfect 3-0 start after  34-10 victory at Illinois for the team’s second win versus a Big Ten squad. WMU led 431-315 In yards and forced a pair of turnovers while limiting the Illini to 15 first downs. Broncos quarterback Zack Terrell was quietly efficient on 9-13 for 150 yards with Corey Davis recording four receptions for 97 yards. The Broncos had their way in the trenches with Jamauri Bogan rambling for 189 yards on 24 carries with one yard and 36 yards scoring runs while Jarvion Franklin added another 72 yards and a trip to the endzone as WMU was the stronger team on both sides of the line of scrimmage.

The under is 4-0 in Eagles last 4 games in September and  is 4-0 in Eagles last 4 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game and  is 6-0 in Eagles last 6 games following a straight up win. The under is 6-0 in Broncos last 6 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and the  are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record while going  6-0 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games. For now I’ll take the points and watch the line…

Pick:
Georgia Southern +8

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
