Through 3 Quarters
The last time the Georgia State Panthers and the Appalachian State Mountaineers met, the matchup was decided by 29 points, but it sure doesn't look like the final will end up so one-sided this time.

The former has caught four passes for one TD and 74 yards, while the latter has picked up 81 yards on the ground on seven carries.
Georgia State has yet to string together two consecutive wins, but this may be their chance. We'll see if they can pull it off.
