A critical game between Sun Belt East rivals will likely determine who goes to the title game. Except this to be a very good game.
This will be the 5th all time meeting between the Eagles and the Trojans. Georgia Southern leads all time 3 games to 1, but Troy blew out the Eagles last season on their way to a Sun Belt championship.
This years’ meeting will have huge Sun Belt title implications, with the winner likely to win the East division.
The Trojans have yet to lose a conference game, making this game a must win. If they were to lose, they would need Georgia Southern to lose another conference game if they are to defend their Sun Belt title.
While the Troy offense have had plenty of very productive games this year, they have also struggled mightily against teams they should not have.
For example, they only scored 16 against Liberty, but scored 24 on Big Ten opponent, Nebraska. If they can get their offense clicking early, they will take one step closer to a Sun Belt East division title.
The Trojans defense has been solid overall this year, allowing 22.8 points per game. This ranks 38th in the country, but for a team in one of the smaller conference this is very good.
There is one outlier going back to week one when the Trojans allowed 56 points to Mountain West opponent, Boise State. If you take out this game, they would be allowing 18.6 points per game.
Defending the run is their specialty, and because the Eagles run a triple option, the Trojans should be able to shut down the run relatively easily.
Georgia Southern Eagles
The Eagles slipped up last week, losing to UL-Monroe 25-44. This puts them in a must win situation if they are to make an appearance in the Sun Belt Championship.
The Eagles will need to establish the run early in this game. If they go behind early, they will be in a world of trouble as teams who run the option typically have a tough time coming from behind when only running the ball.
After getting torched last week, the Eagles face another huge defensive task. Even with allowing 44 points last week, their points allowed per game average only increased to 21.4.
The key to this game for the Eagles will be to shut down the Troy offense early in this game.
