ARKANSAS STATE — 128. When the scoring began in this game, the spread was a mere 4. Eight hours later, Arkansas State was up by 49 points and the spread had reached 128. It was second-worst in all games, at least in the history of the series.

Georgia

The wins brought Georgia State up to 5-5 and Arkansas State to 2-8. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: Georgia State is 208th worst in the nation in touchdowns allowed, with 36 on the season. Arkansas State has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 247th most touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 51 on the season. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.

Georgia State opponents have run the ball 425 times this season, good for 11th most in the nation. Arkansas State is unlikely to continue this trend after throwing the ball 50 times against the Warhawks last week. Look for the Red Wolves to air it out and make Georgia State defend the pass, which they’ve done pretty acceptably or pretty poorly, depending on what you look at. The Panthers have allowed a passer rating of 145.62 (104th in the nation) and 255 passing yards per game (103rd in the country). (Source: georgiastatesignal.com)

Arkansas

This year, Arkansas State has had a callous time stopping the run, ranking near the bottom in both yards allowed per carry (6.5) and rushing yards allowed per game (264.8). Unfortunately for Red Wolves’ head coach Butch Jones and company, the Panthers love to run the ball, averaging 215.7 rushing yards per game, which ranks 17th in the nation. The dynamic duo of Tucker Gregg and Jamyest Williams are looking to feast to the tune of over 200 yards combined, with the possibility of sophomore running back Marcus Carroll getting some touches late if the game gets out of hand.
