Texas State vs Georgia Southern Prediction

After a rough first appearance on Thursday Night Football, in which they saw a five-game winning streak broken, the Eagles are hoping the second time is the charm in the Texas State-Georgia Southern game.

ESPNU will televise Texas State-Georgia Southern from Statesboro Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Eastern. It will be the second straight week Georgia Southern will play on Thursday Night Football, but the Eagles lost at Appalachian State, 31-13, last Thursday.

Being at home for this weeks TNF Texas State-Georgia Southern contest should provide a different atmosphere for the Eagles, who are 3-0 at home this season. Texas State has yet to win on the road this season in three attempts.

After a 44-0 season-opening loss at West Virginia, Georgia Southern rattled off five straight wins to climb to the top of the Sun Belt Conference standings. The loss to Appalachian State dropped the Eagles to a half game behind Appalachian State and Arkansas State.

Texas State also lost its opener to a Power 5 Conference team, falling 59-16 at Florida State, but the Bobcats werent able to bounce back as well as Georgia Southern. Texas State defeated FCS-level Prairie View A&M, 63-24, before dropping three in a row to Southern Miss, Houston, and Louisiana-Lafayette, three games in which the Bobcats allowed 56, 59, and 49 points. TSU bounced back to knock off South Alabama last Saturday, 36-18, to pick up its first Sun Belt victory.

When the Bobcats have played solid defense, theyve won this season. In its two wins, Texas State has allowed an average of 21 points. But in the four losses, Texas State has allowed an average of nearly 56 points per game. But it wouldnt appear the Texas State-Georgia Southern game would be the best opportunity for the Bobcats defense to fix their problems, as Georgia Southern has averaged about 48 points per game in its five wins and just under seven points per game in its two losses.

Texas State and Georgia Southern have met only once in their history, as the Eagles won last season at Texas State, 28-25, en route to an 8-0, first-place finish in the Sun Belt. However, because GSU was in its first season as an FBS team, the Eagles were not allowed to play in a bowl game. If the Eagles were to win the Texas State-Georgia Southern game, they would pick up their sixth win, making them eligible in 2015 for their first-ever bowl game.
