In a game from NCAAF, we will see the teams of Appalachian State Mountaineers at Georgia Southern Eagles on Thursday at Paulson Stadium.
Appalachian State is playing great defense allowing no more than 19 points per game and they run the ball all the time. Jalin Moore is having a decent season and he will probably finish with over 1000 yards on the ground.
Georgia Southern are also depending on the run as they are the 10th best team at rushing in the country. They are averaging over 50 carries per game. Their defense has been overachieving this year, except for the games against Western Michigan and Georgia Tech. Their linebacker Ironhead Gallon is leading the defense to outstanding performances, mostly forcing punts for the opposition.
Appalachian State’s offense is much better than Georgia’s as they tend to mix the run with accurate passes. Both defenses have been great throughout the season but Appalachian’s defense against the run will be very efficient on Thursday. That’s why I think the away side will win with 5 or more points.
