Ragin’ Favorites

After defeating Texas State 45-0 in its 2021 homecoming sport, the house crew appears each bit the a part of favorites. Quarterback Levi Lewis tossed three landing towards the Bobcats to go Ragin’ Cajun legend Jake Delhomme because the all-time program chief.

However as famous above, Napier’s offense revolves round its floor sport. Louisiana has not missed a beat since dropping Elijah Mitchell to the 49ers within the 2021 NFL Draft. The Cajuns characteristic a pair of tailbacks – redshirt sophomore Chris Smith and freshman Montrell Johnson – who’ve every rushed for over 500 yards within the crew’s first eight video games this season. Smith is barely forward of Johnson, busting off 621 yards on 98 carries and eight dashing touchdowns.

Proper behind him has been New Orleans native Johnson, with 512 yards dashing on 86 carries and 7 journeys to pay grime. The Panthers will definitely have their arms full with this dynamic duo. Georgia State may also need to cope with an emboldened defensive unit.

The Cajun protection is coming off its first shutout for the reason that 2012 season and now ranks twentieth nationally in scoring protection, holding opponents to 19.2 factors per sport.

Comeback Youngsters

Georgia State has bounced again properly from its disappointing 1-4 begin. The Panthers knocked off budding rival Georgia Southern 21-14 final Saturday, courtesy of a 23-yard landing run by Jamyest Williams with 26 seconds remaining within the sport.

It marked the crew’s third consecutive win, all in convention play, to get again to .500. The surging Panthers now discover themselves in a three-way tie for first place within the Solar Belt East. Like their ranked opponent Thursday, Elliott’s group is successful by way of the run. Throughout their three-game winnings streak, the Panthers have averaged 282 yards dashing.

The dashing assault includes a trio of stellar operating backs, led by Tucker Gregg (552 yards, 4 touchdowns). Not far behind the previous walk-on are Williams (413 yards, 5 touchdowns) and quarterback Darren Grainger (388 yards, one landing), who’ve all discovered holes behind a veteran offensive line with 175 profession begins.

The GSU protection can be price mentioning, permitting a complete of three touchdowns in back-to-back wins over Texas State and Georgia Southern.

The Ragin’ Cajuns would be the third ranked crew (AP Ballot) the Panthers have matched up towards this season. And despite the fact that the Georgia State program continues to be searching for its first win towards a ranked FBS crew, 5 of the ten events have come towards Energy 5 foes ranked twelfth or increased within the AP ballot. Earlier this season, GSU led then-No. 23 Auburn till the ultimate minute, when the Tigers scored the go-ahead landing on a fourth-down play with 45 seconds left.

Whereas the Panthers could also be winless towards ranked groups, it seems like they’re getting nearer to ending one.

The Tendencies are the Cajuns’ Mates

The Ragin’ Cajuns are 7-0 when showing on ESPN’s household of networks this season and Louisiana owns a 24-7 report towards Solar Belt opposition underneath Coach Napier. Clearly, it seems the house crew is the rightful, somewhat large-sized favourite. Their head coach has a reasonably good pedigree, too.

A giant motive why the crew has ripped off seven straight wins is their expertise. Louisiana returned a nation-high 96% of its manufacturing from a season in the past, together with 93% of its offensive manufacturing and 98% of its defensive manufacturing. That type of returning expertise is difficult to guess towards.

I like what Georgia State has carried out just lately. However with the Louisiana residence crowd positive to be fired up for this “Blackout” residence tilt, I’m laying the factors and going with the favourite.

  • The Choose: Louisiana -11.5 (-110)
