What you need to know about Georgia Southern
Speaking of close games: the Eagles took care of business in their home opener. They dodged a bullet last week, finishing off the Campbell Fighting Camels 27-26. Quarterback Shai Werts had a stellar game for Georgia Southern as he passed for one touchdown and 53 yards on 13 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 155 yards.
Two last-season numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Georgia Southern threw only one interception last year, which ranked first among all teams in the nation. Louisiana was not quite as good, but the Ragin' Cajuns were no chumps, either: they threw only four interceptions last season, the fourth best among all teams in the country. So expect both teams to value protecting the football.
