The Georgia Southern Eagles travel to Oxford, Mississippi this weekend to play the Ole Miss Rebels. Georgia Southern is having a rough year so far with a record of 4-4. The Eagles are coming off of being blown out by App State, their rivals. This week doesn’t get any easier for the Eagles. Ole Miss is bigger, faster, stronger, you name it and Ole Miss has the upper hand on Georgia Southern. Ole Miss hasn’t had a good season either. The Rebels are 3-5 right now. In my eyes they are a better team than their record shows, just like Georgia Southern.
Both teams are coming off a lose from last week. Georgia Southern played last Thursday, they have had more time to rest up and come up with a game plan to try and stop Ole Miss’s explosive offense. If Georgia Southern can get the ground game going again they can make it a game but if not the defense and special teams will have to do all the heavy lifting. We all saw on television last week how that ended for the Eagles. Not good, if Georgia Southern wants to turn their season around and make a statement this is the game to do that. Georgia Southern needs to play their best game of the season. I know it’s not a conference game but it’s a game against a Big 5 Conference school. Georgia Southern has come close in most of their past game against Big 5 schools. Maybe they can pull one out.
Hail Southern and No Place Else!
