GEORGIA STATE GAMEDAY

THREE STORYLINES

Can Georgia State slow Troy's offense? Behind quarterback Corey Robinson, the Trojans have averaged 34.3 points and 462.3 yards per game. Conversely, Georgia State's defense has given up 38.2 points and 469.8 yards per game. So the stats would indicate that coach Trent Miles and defensive coordinator Jesse Minter may be in for a long homecoming game.

Can Georgia State's offense gain some consistency? The offense can help the defense by staying on the field. To do that, they will need to be able to run the ball, which will wind down the clock. Twice this season the Panthers have established new lows for rushing yards in a game, capped by last week's 15-yard effort against Alabama. However, the Trojans have given up 155.7 rushing yards per game this season.

Will this be history to remember or forget? This is the first Sun Belt Conference game in Georgia State history. Will the thought of trying to compete in the Sun Belt, even if the Panthers are ineligible to go to a bowl because this is their first season as an FBS team, spark the squad?

MATCHUP TO WATCH

Troy QB Corey Robinson vs. Georgia LB Allen McKay and DL Mackendy Cheridor. To have any chance of slowing Robinson, one of the nation's better quarterbacks, Georgia State needs to get some production from rush end and put pressure on the quarterback. Georgia State has only five sacks in five games. McKay has one. Cheridor, in limited playing time, doesn't have any.
