We have reached week three of the college football season and most of the games are still non-conference showdowns. In this game the Georgia Southern Eagles make the trip to TCF Bank Stadium to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
This is the first meeting ever between the two teams.
Georgia Southern Eagles
The Georgia Southern Eagles come into this game with a 1-1 record and there are still a lot of questions surronding this team.
After they were blown out in their first game against LSU they bounced back in their last game against Maine, but didn’t cover the spread.
This is a triple-option team, and when they have success it’s because of the ground game. Against Maine they had three different runners who rushed for more than 100 yards.
On the defensive side they haven’t been great in either game. Even though they only gave up 18 points against Maine, they can’t be happy.
In this game it’s going to take a near perfect game. They need to establish the run early and often if they want to pull the upset in this game.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
On the other side of this matchup is the Minnesota Golden Gophers who have made life tough in their first two games, but they have won both of the games.
Against Fresno State in the last game, they had to throw a touchdown on 14th just to force overtime, and then an impressive interception won them the game.
At quarterback the Gophers are led by Tanner Morgan and he has a great receiving corps including Rashaad Bateman and Tyler Johnson.
These are both guys who are going to be playing on Sunday’s and they both should be able to have big games in this one.
On defense they need to stop the run. If they can slow down the run and wear down the offensive line, and that is going to lead to success.
