After last season’s bowl bid and blowout bowl win over Bowling Green, this season has been very underwhelming for Georgia Southern.
They will be trying to salvage something of it if they can close their season off with an upset win over conference powerhouse Troy.
Troy nearly upset Clemson on the road and has rattled wins in 8 of their 9 games since then. They will look to clinch a share of the Sun Belt title with a win on Saturday.
After last season’s 4-8 campaign, the Trojans have gone 9-2 thus far and nearly knocked off Clemson in Week 3.
Their powerful offense has been the difference as they are averaging 35 points per game this season after averaging 27 last season.
Jordan Chunn has rushed for 1153 yards on the season along with 11 touchdowns.
Quarterback Brandon Silvers has thrown for 2727 yards and 21 touchdowns to go with his 4 touchdowns on the ground.
The dynamic duo has kept the Trojans competitive in every game but one – their 35-3 loss at the hands of Arkansas State.
Remaining focused and prepared for this game will be the key instead of looking ahead to the potential bowl opportunities they could be given.
The Trojan defense deserves a lot of credit too and their rush defense will be tested this week against the Eagles heavy rushing attack.
Troy is allowing just 115 yards per game which will be tested by a Georgia Southern unit that has run the ball 564 times this season while only throwing 243.
Georgia Southern Eagles
Last season, the Eagles heavy rushing attack worked great as they ran all over opponents – totaling 4719 rushing yards as a team over the course of the season. That total was at 6.5 yards per carry clip while totaling 54 touchdowns on the ground.
This season has been a different story though. Sure, the Eagles have looked to pass a little more frequently but they have only rushed for 2472 yards and 22 touchdowns on the season.
They are also only averaging 4.4 yards per rush. So, the difference from this season to last has been pretty clear.
The Eagles will have to dig deep for this tough matchup with Troy and see if they could finish off their disappointing season with a home win. At 4-7, the Eagles could potentially become bowl eligible with a win as 5-7 teams can be given bowl bids if their academics reach a certain threshold.
Regardless, don’t expect the Eagles to all of a sudden switch up their gameplan or become last year’s explosive offense in their season finale.
In addition to their offensive struggles, the defense hasn’t been great – allowing 27 points per game and 172 yards per game on the ground.
The Eagles have lost 7 of their last 8 after a 3-0 start and their confidence has to be diminished. The coaches’ toughest challenge may be keeping their men motivated in this game.

Georgia Southern relies on their run game heavily which will keep the clock moving. However, it hasn’t been that effective so points won’t necessarily follow

Troy will also lean heavily on the run game in this road game and should be able to move it pretty effectively. I like Troy to win but the game to stay under the total.
