The Furman Paladins had a pretty soft matchup for their first game of the season, but took care of business in a stylish fashion beating Charleston Southern 46-13.
A much tougher opponent lies ahead for this squad, but they will go into it with plenty of momentum off that first performance.
The Georgia State Panthers, on the other hand, are coming off one of the biggest upset wins in recent memory cashing in on the moneyline at +2900.
They certainly could not have asked for a better start to the season and will now look to take care of business at home against a far easier opponent.
Furman absolutely dominated offensively last week going for 509 total yards and 369 rushing yards against a porous Charleston Southern defense.
The standout performer for the Paladins was junior RB Devin Whyte who amassed 131 yards on the ground off only 12 carries and managed to get into the endzone. He will obviously need to be at his best against this tough opponent and Furman would be wise to get him more touches in this one.
The quarterback play was also decent and efficient going for 140 yards off 14-20 throwing, but didn’t really need to be utilized much as the Paladins were cruising for most of the game.
The defense was not as good as the final score says as they allowed over 350 yards and will need to be a lot better this time as this will be a different level for them this weekend.
Georgia State Panthers
The Panthers were the biggest story of week 1 with their incredible victory over the Volunteers. In that game the rushing attack was really what won them the game amassing 213 yards against a tough defense.
The workhorse in the backfield for that game was senior Tra Barnett who had 21 touches and just barely fell short of the 100 yard mark.
It is certainly not a stretch to imagine him doubling his yardage this week if the Panthers give him the same number of touches.
The one concern about the offense coming out of that game would be with the passing attack which was not very efficient. Senior QB Dan Ellington did not throw much only having 24 attempts which went for 139 yards with a 5.8 average.
It did, however, make sense that the Panthers would do everything they could to keep the ball out of the Volunteer’s hands and focusing on the running game was obviously the right move.
Ellington will look to have a better game here at home against a soft Paladin’s secondary.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
I am going to ride the momentum with the Georgia State Panthers as they are at home and the Paladin’s week 1 win is not all that impressive given the low level of competition.
The spread should be pretty high in this spot, but this team is riding high and I can see them running up the score in this one.
