Georgia Southern enters the matchup with a 3-7 record. The Eagles have dealt with adversity this season after firing former head coach Chad Lunsford. GS ended their national coaching search by hiring former USC headman Clay Helton. Helton is already involved with the Eagle program, but he will not be coaching on Saturday against BYU.Georgia Southern Eagles: 50, Presbyterian Blue Hose: 7


After Ransom’s injury, this game got real ugly for both teams. A blocked punt returned for a touchdown by Texas State before halftime evened the score at 17, and the scoring floodgates opened after half. Southern returned the favor, blocking a punt of their own and returning it for a score to open the third frame, and the teams traded scores from then on.Tyler Vitt finished the night 30 of 47 for 276 yards and an interception, and Bobcat receivers were taking advantage of porous secondary play for the majority of the game. But the baffling part was Jake Spavital and company deciding to run the ball 35 times as a team at 2.2 yards per carry, stalling many of Texas State’s drives.

BYU will win this game. But it might be the type of margin that people witnessed against Idaho State. The last time BYU lost a game as a 20-point favorite was in 2014 at home against Utah State. However, history won’t repeat itself in Statesboro as BYU wins by three touchdowns led by the offense.PROVO, UT - NOVEMBER 06: Brigham Young Cougars wide receiver Puka Nacua (12) during a game between the Idaho State Bengals and BYU Cougars on November 06, 2021, at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah.

Following a blueprint that's helped them all season long, McKinnon, Ellison and Banks proved unstoppable for Muschamp's defense. McKinnon rushed for 125 yards on only nine carries, including a 66-yard jaunt on Georgia Southern's opening drive of the second half that finished with a Ellison sneak from one yard out. That score gave Georgia Southern a 14-10 lead with 12:24 remaining in the quarter and was the second score on a 20-0 run after the Gators opened with 10 straight points. Again with its back against the wall, Florida attempted to save its skin. The Gators took the ball with 2:57 remaining and two timeouts, subsequently driving all the way down to the Georgia Southern 17-yard line. But Mornhinweg's final three passes went incomplete, including a third-down throw to Quinton Dunbar in the end zone that could have won it had the young quarterback been accurate.

But as was the story throughout the entire game, Georgia Southern's rushing attack took over the contest. The Eagles, who were attempting to drain as much time as they possibly could, instead needed only five plays to cover 75 yards. Jerick McKinnon rushed off the right end for a 14-yard touchdown to give Georgia Southern a 26-20 lead, but the game was left to hang in the balance after Younghoe Koo missed his second extra point of the game. “We’ve just got to put four quarters together, because BYU is a top opponent — nationally ranked, their coaches are top notch. Anytime you hear BYU, you know their team is going to come to play.” — Georgia Southern interim head coach Kevin Whitley, on facing BYU. (Source: www.deseret.com)
