What to Know
Get ready for a Sun Belt battle as the Georgia State Panthers and the Old Dominion Monarchs will face off at 3 p.m. ET Saturday at Center Parc Stadium. Georgia State is out to stop a seven-game streak of losses at home.
The Panthers suffered a bitter loss last week, failing to capitalize on an early lead against the Appalachian State Mountaineers. Georgia State's bruising 42-17 defeat to Appalachian State might stick with them for a while. Georgia State was up 14 to nothing at the end of the first quarter but couldn't hold on to the lead. Georgia State's defeat came about despite a quality game from RB Tucker Gregg, who punched in one rushing touchdown.
Meanwhile, Old Dominion was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap last week as they fell 28-23 to the Georgia Southern Eagles. RB Blake Watson put forth a good effort for the losing side as he rushed for one TD and 108 yards on 16 carries.
Special teams collected 11 points for the Monarchs. K Ethan Sanchez delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
The Panthers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. True fans might be the only ones betting on them, currently 2-4 ATS, to cover the spread.
With the two teams each stumbling in off of a defeat, both will be hungry for the win. Giving up four turnovers, Georgia State had had trouble holding onto the ball. We'll see if the Monarchs can exploit that vulnerability.
