What to Know

The Georgia Southern Eagles and the Appalachian State Mountaineers are set to square off in a Sun Belt matchup at 6 p.m. ET Nov. 26 at Allen E. Paulson Stadium. If the nothing to nothing final from the last time they met is any indication, this matchup will be decided by the defense.

Georgia Southern came up short against the Marshall Thundering Herd last week, falling 23-10. QB Kyle Vantrease had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw one interception and fumbled the ball once with only 5.26 yards per passing attempt.

Meanwhile, Appalachian State beat the Old Dominion Monarchs 27-14 last week. The team accrued 24 points in the first half and coasted on those for the win. RB Ahmani Marshall was the offensive standout of the game for the Mountaineers, rushing for one TD and 137 yards on 19 carries.

The Eagles are expected to lose this next one by 6. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Georgia Southern is now 5-6 while Appalachian State sits at a mirror-image 6-5. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Georgia Southern comes into the contest boasting the sixth most passing yards per game in the nation at 322.3. The Mountaineers have displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they enter the contest with 28 passing touchdowns, good for 14th best in the nation.
