Georgia Southern at Louisiana Game Preview

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

Can the Eagles get bowl eligible?

They’re one win away, and to get there they need the high-powered offense to roll with a big day from the passing game.

Not surprisingly, they’re 4-0 when they’ve had their four best offensive outputs of the season – coming up with 470 yards or more in each of the four.

They’re amazing on third downs, the offensive line has been a rock in pass protection, and there’s just enough of a ground game to even things out to go along with the Sun Belt’s best passing attack.

Bowl Bubble: Every Team’s Bowl Situation

Why Louisiana Will Win

The Louisiana pass defense hasn’t been bad.

Overall the D has been a plus, making up for a few mistakes here and there with multiple takeaways. On the secondary’s worst day of the season – allowing 320 yards to Eastern Michigan – the defense came up with five takeaways in the win.

It all comes down to mistakes for the offensive side. There’s enough of a passing game to bomb away on the struggling Eagle secondary, and getting to 500 yards is a must against the nation’s third-worst defense.

As long as the Ragin’ Cajuns win the turnover battle everything will be fine, but …

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Don’t give the ball away and everything will be fine for the home side.

Louisiana is 3-0 when it doesn’t turn the ball over and 1-5 when it does – Georgia Southern only come up with multiple takeaways three times.

At home, and in desperate need of pulling off a win to stay alive for a bowl game, it’ll hold up in a fun shootout.

Georgia Southern vs Old Dominion Game Preview

Why Old Dominion Will Win

That’s how it’s supposed to work.

The Old Dominion passing game was efficient in the 49-21 shocker at Coastal Carolina last week, but it was the ground attack that took over and dominated.

After not doing much of anything all year, everything worked with 324 yards – almost half of the season total – with Blake Watson ripping off 256 yards and three scores.

That isn’t how the ODU offense normally works, but against Georgia Southern’s run defense that gets gouged for 221 yards per game, the main man will get fed again.

NFL Expert Picks, Week 7

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

Yeah, Georgia Southern will see your 300+ rushing yards and raise you 578 against James Madison.

The Dukes had one of the nation’s best run defenses, so the Eagles didn’t even bother as Kyle Vantrease went off, three different targets went over 100 yards, and now it’s time to roll on an Old Dominion pass defense that’s getting lit up for a Sun Belt-most 278 yards per game.

The Monarchs bring the nation’s best pass rush, but it doesn’t translate into production in the secondary.

– Game Previews, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Can this really be as fun as they were last week? Let’s hope so.

The Sun Belt has been crazy unpredictable this year – last week with both of these teams showed that – but both passing games have been rock steady.

Can Old Dominion really do that again on the ground? Even if it does, Georgia Southern can keep bombing its way out of it.

The Monarchs are better at forcing takeaways and the the Eagles buckle when they start giving it away.

Georgia Southern will convert its third down tries. Old Dominion won’t.

James Madison vs Georgia Southern Game Preview

Why James Madison Will Win

The run defense continues to be the best in the county.

Texas State was able to run for 106 yards, but that’s been it against a D that so far has allowed 205 yards in five games.

The Dukes are making a ton of plays in the backfield, the offense is dominating the time of possession battle, and everything is working on both sides of the ball.

Appalachian State is the only team to come close to taking down the new FBS program.

Georgia Southern wants to throw more than run, but the offensive side isn’t the issue. The worst run defense in the Sun Belt is the concern against an efficient JMU offense that hit 200 rushing yards against everyone but Appalachian State.

However …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 6

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

Georgia Southern’s offensive line has been terrific.

It’s solid for the ground game, the pass protection is as good as any team in the country, and the attack knows how to get things moving. Everything sets up perfectly for what the No. 1 offense in the Sun Belt does – run well enough, hit the third down opportunities, play with a good pace.

Last week the Eagles lost to rival Georgia State on turnovers – there were four picks to go along with a lost fumble. As amazing as James Madison’s defense is, it doesn’t come up with a ton of interceptions.

Limit the mistakes, control the lines, and have a shot because …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Other than Appalachian State, James Madison’s defense hasn’t faced anyone who’s all that dangerous. Georgia Southern has the offense to press and keep pressing.

However, the Eagles couldn’t get the win against a Coastal Carolina offense that control the tempo, and they’ve struggled overall against good passing teams. They’re allowing well over 300 yards in three of the last five games and gave up over 600 combined rushing yards in the other two against UAB and Georgia State.

James Madison’s defense will have a tough afternoon, but the offense will make up for it.

Georgia Southern vs Georgia State Game Preview

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

The offense continues to move the chains.

It’s fourth in the nation in third down conversions, averages 500 yards per game, and it’s versatile enough to keep things going in a variety of ways.

The passing game has been great, the ground attack averages 5.6 yards per carry, and it all starts with an offensive line that doesn’t allow anything in the backfield.

Georgia Southern leads the nation in fewest tackles for loss allowed and is second in sacks allowed.

Georgia State doesn’t come up with sacks and struggles to get behind the line.

NFL Expert Picks, Week 5

Why Georgia State Will Win

The Panthers finally got the season going with a terrific 31-14 win over Army. They played well over the first month but couldn’t force a break, and then it all worked with the ground game and takeaways finally getting it done.

Can they keep running on the Eagles? The Georgia State ground attack hit the 200 yard mark against everyone but Coastal Carolina, and Georgia Southern is allowing 5.4 yards per carry getting gouged a bit too much.

Georgia State doesn’t have a pass rush, but Georgia Southern really doesn’t generate pressure. Give QB Darren Grainger time and he’ll produce.

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

This should be fun.

Both offenses know how to get the party moving, and both defenses are more than happy to keep the drinks cold.

Georgia State played well in the 0-4 start but turnovers in a few games, lots of penalties in others, and key misfires did it in. At home the running game will get off the bus with 200 yards, there won’t be enough turnovers to matter, and …

Georgia Southern PK Alex Raynor hasn’t missed a kick all year. He won’t in the final seconds in this, either.

Ball State vs Georgia Southern Game Preview

Why Ball State Will Win

The Cardinals might not be getting the offense going, but the defense has been making plays.

No one’s slowing down Tennessee, and the Western Michigan game was a shootout. The defense should be able to generate a slew of third down stops, and the other side should be able to control things at least a little bit.

The offensive line has been doing a great job of keeping defenses out of the backfield – the Cardinals are tied for second in the nation in tackles for loss allowed – the pass protection will be solid, and …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

Georgia Southern is tied with Ball State in tackles for loss allowed.

The passing game suffered a hiccup in the loss to UAB, but the running game was fine, the offense has a balance, and the defense that kept the Blazer passing attack under wraps should be okay.

Even though the O didn’t do what it wanted, the chains kept moving. The Eagles are among the best in the country on third downs – they’re converting 62% of their chances – and they’re going to keep on bombing away, but …

10 Best Predictions Against the Spread

What’s Going To Happen

Ball State is good at slowing down teams on third downs. It’s going to make this a battle.

The difference will be the home side of things. Georgia Southern will be a bit better in Allen E. Paulson. It’ll keep the penalties to a minimum – Ball State has a bigger issue with flags – and the offense will be just a wee bit more consistent.

Georgia Southern vs UAB Game Preview

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

How’s the Clay Helton era going so far?

All Georgia Southern did over the first two weeks was go 2-0, hang 144 points on the board, come up with the most yards ever by an opponent in Lincoln, Nebraska – 642 – and became the proverbial last straw for the Scott Frost era with the Huskers.

The program known for its dangerous running game is winging it all around the yard with former Buffalo QB Kyle Vantrease going off. and now the offense rolls into Birmingham to make UAB try to keep up.

UAB turned it over four times in the loss at Liberty, the defense hasn’t been a rock so far, and …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 3

Why UAB Will Win

The Blazer pass defense has been fine.

Alabama A&M wasn’t able to do anything, Liberty never got into a groove, and now the team should be settled in at home. The D has been great so far on third downs, the rushing offense should be good enough to keep the Eagle offense on the sidelines, and the pass rush should be a problem for Vantrease.

The Blazers might not be flashy so far offensively, but they’ve been solid. As long as they don’t fumble like they did against Liberty, they should be able to keep up.

Week 3 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Is Georgia Southern really that amazing?

It’s second in the nation in total offense behind Minnesota, the offensive line has yet to allow a sack, and moving the chains hasn’t been a problem. The team was able to handle Nebraska on the road, so can UAB be that much more difficult?

Yeah.

The Blazer defense will rise up with a brilliant performance, the offense won’t turn it over like it did against the Flames last week, and the Bryant Vincent era will get its first big win by controlling the clock and generating more pressure than Georgia Southern has seen so far.

Georgia Southern vs Morgan State Game Preview

Why Morgan State Will Win

The Bears return a veteran team with experience on the lines to hold up a bit.

Georgia Southern is in a redo in the new Clay Helton era. It needs the new parts to fit right away, the offensive line has to prove it can start doing something consistently right, and the defense that finished 110th in the nation has to try to get better without a whole lot of experience.

However …

Week 1 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

Morgan State has to prove it can score.

It’s losing a slew of skill parts, but that’s not a huge deal consisting the offense struggled to get anywhere near 300 yards per game and only scored more than 20 points once.

Georgia Southern might be in reboot mode, but enough players are there to be okay through the chances, and there’s almost no real threat of getting into a firefight.

A few early scores should do it.

What’s Going To Happen

Sun Belt Preseason Predictions For Every Game: Preview 2022

Sun Belt predictions for every team and every game in the 2022 college football season

The Sun Belt just got a whole lot more interesting with the addition of Marshall, Old Dominion, and Southern Miss from Conference USA – and getting them a year before it seemed possible – and also brought in FCS powerhouse James Madison to a be a part of the fun.

The divisions are staying for now, but the great additions will make it far, far tougher for Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, and Louisiana to keep on dominating – even though they might not take that big a step back, if any.

While it might seem a bit cut-and-dry with the way the league is set up, watch out for some potentially big moves from some teams that struggled. The problem will be the schedules for Troy, South Alabama, and Arkansas State. Georgia State and Old Dominion programs that got to bowl games last season will have to fight, too.

The Sun Belt is stronger than ever and the season should be the best yet. The Sun Belt predictions for 2022 are …

2022 Preseason CFN Sun Belt Offensive Player of the Year

QB Grayson McCall, Jr. Coastal Carolina

The star in the emergence of Coastal Carolina football, McCall has been one of the nation’s most efficient and effective passers over the last two seasons hitting 71% of his throws for close to 5.400 yards with 53 touchdowns and six picks.

He’s able to run – 870 yards and 11 career touchdowns – hit the deep ball, and get the high-octane attack rolling at will. Coastal Carolina has some rebuilding to do, but McCall will make everyone around him better.

2022 Preseason CFN Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year

LB Carlton Martial, Sr. Troy

The newly configured Sun Belt is loaded with do-it-all linebackers, but no one does-it-all more more than Martial. He’s not all that big, but the 5-9, 210-pound flash gets all over the field as a bit of a hybrid playmaker.

Going into his fifth season, he already has 443 tackles, ten sacks, 47.5 tackles for loss, and five picks with seven forced fumbles on the resumé.

Georgia Southern Eagles Preview 2022

Clay Helton was hardly awful at USC.

A good guy who everyone liked – you don’t survive a 5-7 season at that place if you rub people the wrong way – he won a Pac-12 title, won a Rose Bowl, and it wasn’t nearly enough for a program that demands College Football Playoff consideration.

He knows how to get an offense going, and now he gets to tweak a Georgia Southern program that also rightly expects success – albeit on a different scale.

The Eagles came into 2021 with three straight winning seasons and bowl appearances, but the O couldn’t get going, the losses kept rolling, and in comes Helton to change all of that.

With eight starters back on offense, six back on D, and with what should be one of the Sun Belt’s better kicking games, things should bounce back fast.

Georgia Southern Eagles Preview 2022: Offense

The offense has been in a pivot from the triple option style for a while, but now the new coaching staff really will adjust a bit more with a spread style that incorporates even more of a balance. Whatever it’s going to be, it has to work a whole lot better than the version of last year that struggled to average 20 points and 340 yards per game.

The running game wasn’t good enough, the passing game wasn’t efficient, and now it all has to be better with eight starters back.

The hope is for Buffalo transfer Kyle Vantrease to add a steady veteran presence. The sixth-year quarterback can run, but he’s more of a passer who can do a little of everything. The Eagle quarterbacks combined to throw for five touchdown passes and 12 picks – Justin Tomlin is gone, but Cam Ransom isn’t a bad No. 2 option to work around.

The receivers are in place to help. The emphasis wasn’t on the passing game so the numbers weren’t amazing, but Khaleb Hood led the way with 35 catches and 442 yards, and there’s just enough speed around to hit more deep plays. Three of the five touchdown catches went to TE Beau Johnson, a 6-1, 225-pound junior who needs to be a featured target.

The running backs need more room to move. The Eagles have high-powered runners who should average over five yards per carry. Leading rusher Logan Wright is gone, but juniors Gerald Green and Jalen White combined for over 800 yards, nine touchdowns, and 5.6 yards per pop.

The offensive front that couldn’t generate a push and allowed way too many plays behind the line gets back just about everyone around all-star guard Khalil Crowder.

Georgia Southern Eagles Preview 2022: Defense

The defense tried to help the cause, but it wasn’t great against the run and finished 110th in the nation overall. It’s not as experienced as the offensive side, but six starters are back with just enough upside to be a whole lot stronger under the new coaching staff.

The line should be the early strength. Sixth year senior Justin Ellis returns after tying for the team lead with five sacks. Combined with veteran Dillon Springer, the Eagles have the ends.

Now they need the tackles to form a solid rotation with good interior pass rusher CJ Wright gone off the nose.Size and bulk will be an early issue, but 300-pound former North Carolina transfer Kristian Varner should help.

The linebacking corps went young last season, and now it should pay off. Eldrick Robinson is gone to Wake Forest, and Michael Edwards is off to East Carolina. There was next to nothing happening in the backfield from the outside linebackers – that’s about to change under the new staff – but the inside guys have to emerge.

The secondary has to be far, far better. It will be thanks to the return of star CB Derrick Canteen, one of the best defensive players in the Sun Belt who missed most of last year with a torn pectoral muscle.

Leading tackler Anthony Wilson is back at one safety spot after making 78 tackles, and versatile Justin Birdsong returns for a fifth year after finishing fourth on the team with 49 stops.
