Coastal Carolina vs Georgia State Game Preview
Why Coastal Carolina Will Win
Where’s it all going wrong for Georgia State?
This is a veteran team that was supposed to be solid. Losing to South Carolina and North Carolina weren’t any big deal, but dropping the 42-41 home game to a struggling Charlotte squad was disastrous.
The Panthers are rolling up the yards, but they’re not playing a lick of defense, there hasn’t been a penalty they don’t seem to enjoy committing, and …
Time of possession. If you can’t control the clock, you can’t get by Coastal Carolina. Ask Army how that works.
Georgia State is holding the ball for just over 25 minutes per game. That equals death against a Coastal Carolina offense that rolls when it’s able to hit the third down conversions. However …
Why Georgia State Will Win
The Chanticleers are scuffling a bit.
They shocked Army 38-28 to open the season, but needed everything in the bag to get by Gardner-Webb and last week had to work too much to get by Buffalo. And what’s been the big problem?
Turnovers. The defense has forced nine over the last two games, but the six given away made life difficult.
Gardner-Webb threw at will, Buffalo was able to stay alive on the takeaways, and Georgia State needs all of that.
The Panther ground game has been fantastic, the big plays were there, and …
What’s Going To Happen
Coastal Carolina is just too efficient.
As rough as things have been over the 3-0 start, the Chanticleer run defense – even against Army – has been outstanding.
That’s good, but Grayson McCall and the passing game continue to be among the nation’s most effective, and the Panther secondary hasn’t appreciably improved since getting hit for over 400 yards and five touchdowns by Charlotte’s Chris Reynolds last week.
This is going to be a wild, fun game to get the college football weekend going.
