What to Know

Get ready for a Sun Belt battle as the Southern Miss Golden Eagles and the Georgia Southern Eagles will face off at 1 p.m. ET Saturday at Reed Green Coliseum. Southern Miss is out to keep their 14-game home win streak alive.

There's no need to mince words: the Golden Eagles lost to the South Alabama Jaguars on Thursday, and they lost bad. The score wound up at 85-54.

Meanwhile, Georgia Southern was just a bucket short of a win on Thursday and fell 84-83 to the Marshall Thundering Herd.

Southern Miss is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (12-6), so they might be worth a quick bet.

Southern Miss is now 23-5 while Georgia Southern sits at 14-14. The Golden Eagles don't typically stay down for long -- they're 4-0 after losses this season -- so the Eagles (8-5 after losses) won't have an easy go of it.
