Georgia State (1-1) vs Memphis (1-1)
Favorite: Memphis -28.5 Points
Total: 63 Points
Flashes Game Notes
This is the first meeting between these two schools so we don’t have any history or a rivalry to deal with today.
Georgia State Junior QB Dan Ellington is the Panthers leading passer (381 yards, 3TD’s, 0 INT’s) as well as their leading rusher (107 yards, 0 TD’s) so Memphis will need to find a way to contain him tonight. The Tigers defense allows just 83 passing yards per game but makes up for it by allowing 278.5 rushing yards per game.
The Tigers already good secondary will get a real test tonight as Georgia State has three nice WR’s in Devin Gentry, Christian Owens and Penny Hart. All are big play guys and none average less than three catches per game.
Memphis Junior QB Brady White is off to a nice start, completing 69 percent of his passes for 503 yards, five TD’s and one interception. That bodes well for Brady as Georgia State is allowing 313.5 passing yards per game, three touchdowns and two interceptions.
I really like Memphis Junior RB Darrell Henderson and his 288 rushing yards on just 22 attempts……and the four TD’s are okay too!!! Georgia State does have a good run defense allowing just 117 rushing yards a game and just one TD this season. Should be a good test for Henderson tonight.
Conclusion and Pick
These two defenses are suspect. Both teams have good offenses. Georgia State might not win this NCAA College Football Game but they should cover the 28.5 points.
Take Georgia State and the 28.5 points.
