3rd Quarter Report
Fortunes may be turning around for Georgia State after losing four in a row. They have a bit of a cushion as they currently lead Old Dominion 21-7. Georgia State took a big hit to their ego last Saturday, so a victory here would be a pleasant pick-me-up.
If Georgia State keeps playing like this, they'll bump their record up to 7-5 in no time. On the other hand, Old Dominion will have to make due with a 5-7 record unless they turn things around (and fast).

What to Know
After two games on the road, Old Dominion is heading back home. The Old Dominion Monarchs and the Georgia State Panthers will face off in a Sun Belt East battle at 2:00 p.m. ET on Saturday at Kornblau Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium. Coming in fresh off a win as the underdog, Old Dominion will stroll into this one as the favorite.
Last Saturday, Old Dominion narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past Georgia Southern 20-17. The win was just what Old Dominion needed coming off of a 38-10 defeat in their prior matchup.
Grant Wilson was the offensive standout of the match as he picked up 30 receiving yards and a touchdown, and also threw for 182 yards and a touchdown. Wilson has been a model of consistency, as he's now posted a passer rating of 70 or better in the last six games he's played.
Meanwhile, Georgia State's recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Saturday after their fourth straight loss. They were dealt a punishing 56-14 defeat at the hands of LSU.
The match pitted two dominant signal callers against one another in Darren Grainger and Jayden Daniels. Daniels had a great game and threw for 413 yards and six touchdowns while completing 83.3% of his passes. Meanwhile, Grainger did his best for the losing side, throwing for 179 yards and a touchdown while completing 79.3% of his passes.
Old Dominion's loss dropped their record down to 5-6, while Georgia Southern's bumped their own down to the opposite: 6-5.
Old Dominion lost to Georgia State at home by a decisive 31-17 margin in their previous meeting back in October of 2022. A big factor in that loss was the dominant performance of Georgia State's Grainger, who rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown, and also threw for 195 yards and a touchdown. Now that Old Dominion knows the damage he can cause, will they be able to stop him this time? There's only one way to find out.
