This week three matchup will see the Western Michigan Broncos out of the MAC face off with the Georgia State Panthers out of the Sun Belt.
In 2018, Western Michigan beat Georgia State 34-15.
Georgia State Panthers
We all know Georgia State pulled that massive upset over Tennessee in week one, but in week two they did not look as sharp. They ended up winning the game over Furman 48-42.
Georgia State were down 20-3 before storming back to win this game. They totaled 566 yards of offense, but also got gashed on the other side of the ball.
Georgia State came out extremely flat against the Paladins after that win over the Vols. Dan Ellington threw for 362 yards an five passing touchdowns.
The Panthers gained 204 yards on the ground, but their leading rusher had 86 yards. They had another guy with 64 yards rushing, so overall they were still pretty balanced.
The standout for the offense was wide receiver, Cornelius McCoy. He had 10 catches for 143 yards an one touchdown. Also, five different receivers scored a touchdown, so their quarterback does an excellent job of moving the ball around.
Defensively, the Panthers looked very bad. They allowed 538 total yards and now allow an average of 471 yards per game. This ranks 114th in the country. Western Michigan is not the great offensive team, but the Panthers must improve especially in their pass defense if they want to continue winning games.
Western Michigan Broncos
The Broncos got crushed last week by Michigan State in a game that ended 51-17.
The Broncos had no chance to win this game and were down 21-0 by the end of the first quarter.
Offensively, the Broncos are a top 16 passing team. They average 326.5 yards per game through the air and it will need to be a focal point against the Panthers.
On the other side, they have been terrible running the ball. They average just 78.5 yards on the ground, which is 122nd in the country. This is concerning because if the passing game is not working it is not like they can just start running the ball with success. The Broncos will need to run the ball early to potentially set up the deep pass.
Defensively, the Broncos are one of the worst in the country. They allow 452 yards per game, which is 109th in the country. They defend neither the pass or run well and rank 100th or worse in both of those categories.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Georgia State Panthers +8.5
Western Michigan looked very bad last week an even though that game was against a Big 10 school, I like Georgia State to hang with them and cover the number.
