Sun Belt vs. Conference USA in this one. It should be a competitive mathcup.
Western Kentucky is more of a defensive minded program while Georgia State is a solid offensive one.
This is not a high profile game. Both programs are just looking for continued development.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
Kudos to WKU for being able to get 11 games in this season. That is without a Championship Game to play in too. It might be a small win for the Hilltoppers but you gotta give them some credit.
It was all those nonconference games that killed WKU. They have losses against Louisville, Liberty and BYU. Within Conference USA they were a competitive 4-3
That is pretty good considering their offense was terrible for most of the year. Even with over 30 points in their final two games they only averaged 18ppg for the season.
The defense was good, especially against the pass (7th) but when you are scoring, or not scoring, like that it is tough to win ball games.
Georgia State Panthers
The Sun Belt is not the SEC but it was really strong this season. You had Coastal Carolina and Louisiana grabbing all of the headlines overshadowing the fact that there are a number of good teams.
The Panthers made a bad headline when they were victims of a 51-0 beating by CCU. The context is that the team was really depleted for that one. In games against Louisiana and App State, they lost by a combined 7 points.
GSU finished the season scoring 32ppg and giving up the same 32ppg. On offense, they are pretty balanced. On defense, their splits are pretty dramatic. They are really bad against the pass.
GSU comes into the game with some momentum, winning three of their last four. That includes a win over rival Georgia Southern.
The fact that they can win while being light on defensive intensity might play in their favour in the bowl game.

Free Lending Tree Bowl NCAA Football Pick
These are two very solid programs. Generally when they take on teams at their level they compete well so I think we can expect a good game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Georgia State -3.5
That hook is never fun to fool with but I think Georgia State is going to be able to move the ball and score against Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers recent scoring increase is encouraging and even if that continues the Panthers only needs to best them by a full score. They can do that.
