What to Know
The South Alabama Jaguars have enjoyed the comforts of home their last four games, but now they must head out on the road. South Alabama and the Georgia Southern Eagles will face off in a Sun Belt battle at 7:30 p.m. ET Thursday at Allen E. Paulson Stadium. The Jaguars have not won a single game against Georgia Southern in their most recent matchups, going 0-5 since November of 2015.
South Alabama took their game against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks last week by a conclusive 38-14 score. That 24-point margin sets a new team best for South Alabama on the season. WR Kawaan Baker and QB Desmond Trotter were among the main playmakers for South Alabama as the former caught six passes for three TDs and 154 yards and the latter passed for three TDs and 184 yards on 12 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 33 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Baker’s 80-yard TD reception in the first quarter.
Meanwhile, the Eagles came up short against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers last week, falling 28-14. QB Shai Werts had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw two interceptions with only 94 yards passing.
The Jaguars are expected to lose this next one by 4. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
South Alabama’s victory brought them up to 3-2 while Georgia Southern’s loss pulled them down to an identical 3-2. South Alabama is 1-1 after wins this season, and the Eagles are 1-0 after losses.
