Troy is not to be taken lightly this season, just as LSU. As impressive as that win was we are equally confused about the loss last week to Southern Alabama.
This team has interesting floors and ceilings which makes them tough to handicap.
Georgia State has also been off to a good start and even better in the Sun Belt where they are 2-0. If they get this home win over Troy they could be in really good shape as they host Appalachian State later in the year.
Troy has shown this season that they can compete with the big boys but last week was a head scratcher. They played sloppy football and got beat. The 19-8 score was actually flattering. They were down 19-0.
Turnovers really tripped up the Trojans in this one. They lost three fumbles which overwhelmed the fact that they outgained the Jaguars. This group has to play clean to play well.
If the Trojans clean up the turnovers and play their game this should be a very interesting contest. They can compete here even on the road.
Georgia State Panthers
The Panthers have won three in a row after a rough start to the season. They lost to FCS Tennessee State and then were shutout by Penn State, Things looked really bleak.
Since then three straight wins including a shutout of their own and they are looking like a Sun Belt contender. The offense still needs some fine tuning but a lot of their stats are affected by small sample size.
They do have a few players who might not play in this one due to undisclosed circumstances, including leading rusher Taz Bateman. This is not a group to back when they are shorthanded.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
This week it seems like there are a lot of favourites in that -7.5 range. They are so tempting for teasers and I would put the Trojans in that group.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Troy -7.5
Like a lot of those other favourites I think that Troy is a pretty good bet even at the current number. They can win this game by a score in each half for sure.
If GSU has their full compliment than maybe they keep this one close throughout but I expect Troy to be in control.
