what to know

The Georgia Southern Eagles are on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns and are hoping to record their first win since November 25, 2017. Georgia Southern and Louisiana will face off in a battle for the Sun Belt. 7:30 pm ET on Thursday at Cajun Field. Both teams suffered a defeat in the last game, so they will have a lot of motivation to get the ‘W’.

The Eagles entered the contest against the South Alabama Jaguars last week without a loss at home – but there’s a first time for everything. Georgia Southern fell short of South Alabama, falling 38-31. Georgia Southern was 21-7 at the end of the first quarter but failed to maintain the lead. The loss shouldn’t overshadow the performances of RB Jalen White, who scored a rushing touchdown, and WR Derwin Burgess Jr., who caught eight passes for a TD and 96 yards. That touchdown — a 54-yard rush in the first quarter — was one of the highlights of the game.

The Eagles’ defense was also a presence, as it overtook the Jaguars’ offensive line to fire QB Carter Bradley four times for a total loss of 27 yards. Leading the way was DL Da’Shawn Davis and his two sacks. Those were the first sacks for Davis this year.

Meanwhile, the Ragin’ Cajuns were a touchdown late to steal the win, but they took the “L” against the Troy Trojans 23-17. Louisiana’s loss came despite a quality game from QB Ben Wooldridge, who racked up 112 yards, as well as running for two touchdowns and 34 yards.

Eagles are expected to miss this close by 3.5. Those burned out when picking them against the spread last week should keep in mind that the team has yet to lose back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Georgia Southern is now 5-4, while Louisiana sits in a mirror image of 4-5. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: Georgia Southern enters the game after catching the ball ten times, good for 20th place in the country. But Louisiana is even better: they enter the game after catching the ball 14 times, good for third place in the country. We’ll see if that advantage gives Louisiana a path to victory.
