In a game from Week 6 of the NCAAF, we will see the teams of Georgia Southern Eagles at Arkansas State Red Wolves on Wednesday at Centennial Bank Stadium, Jonesboro, Arkansas.
Georgia Southern are coming to Arkansas after their first loss of the season. They lost to Western Michigan 49-31 coming into the bye week. Last year’s champions Arkansas State are the big disappointment so far because they lost all of their games until now. The Red Wolves fell consecutively to Toledo, Auburn, Utah State and last week to Central Arkansas. They are struggling against the run, allowing 239 yards compared to their 80 yards so far. This is great news for Georgia Southern as their style fits the way Arkansas is playing. The Eagles’ style is based on the running game and controlling the clock, not allowing their defense to be on the field for much time. The Red Wolves have been more impressive with their offense, although it is one-dimensional and their quarterback doesn’t have star potential.
Their defense is also better than their opponents’, despite the fact that Arkansas State probably have more talent but they haven’t improved throughout the first four games. Breida hasn’t had a 100-yard game since the start of the season but Georgia State will be more than willing to turn him loose against linebackers who are struggling against the run.
