Georgia State vs Marshall Predictions

Published on

Georgia State is on the road playing Marshall at the Joan C. Edwards Stadium stadium on Saturday, 11/26/2022 @ 12:00pm EST. Marshall -6 was the opening favorite and line hasn't moved.

The Georgia State Panthers (4-7, 3-4 Sun Belt) visit Huntington, West Virginia and Joan C. Edwards Stadium on Saturday to play the Marshall Thundering Herd (7-4, 4-3 Sun Belt). Last Saturday, Georgia State lost its second straight game to James Madison 42-40. The Dukes gained 425 yards of total offense against Georgia State, while Georgia State gained only 257 yards. Last Saturday, Marshall defeated Georgia Southern 23-10 for its third straight win. Cam Fancher passed for 274 yards and two touchdowns for Marshall. It is uncertain whether Georgia State will be able to play without linebacker Blake Carroll and running back Jamyest Williams. Marshall's wide receiver Talik Keaton is questionable.

Marshall's defense averages 286.2 yards per game, ranking 10th in the country. Marshall's top three tacklers are all linebackers. The leader is Eli Neal with 80 points, followed by Charlie Gray with 62 and Abraham Beauplan with 57. Micah Abraham has five interceptions to match Owen Porter's 8.5 quarterback sacks.

Marshall receiver Corey Gammage has 45 receptions for 659 yards and five touchdowns.

The Thundering Herd have won the last three and four of the last five games, holding opponents to 13 points or less in four of those games. Against the run, Marshall holds opponents to an average of 91.2 points per game, which will shut down Georgia State's strength, which averages 227.9 yards rushing per game.
