Georgia Southern vs North Carolina State College Football Preview

Georgia Southern at North Carolina State
The Georgia Southern Eagles take on the North Carolina State Wolfpack at Carter-Finley Stadium. In yet another FCS vs. FBS matchup the Eagles face an NC State team that didn’t win a conference game in the ACC. Last season the Wolfpack won their opener against Louisiana Monroe easily, but a win this year may not come so easily. NC State will enter this game on an eight game losing streak that went back well into last season. The Wolfpack will be hard pressed to win any more games then they did last year. -Keys for Appalachian State Mountaineers:

Keys for the Georgia Southern Eagles:

      • Georgia Southern will need to reduce the amount of turnovers they had last year, especially the 31 fumbles that they had.
      • Jerrock McKinnon hopes to add to his rushing tally this year, and hopefully he can penetrate the Yellow Jacket defense.

Keys for the N.C. State Wolfpack:

      • Senior QB Pete Thomas will take all of the snaps this season, and he will need to improve quickly. While Thomas was splitting snaps he passed for 1667 yards and 9 interceptions 6 total touchdowns.
      • Junior RB Shadrach Thornton showed an impressive improvement in his sophomore season and may have improved even more for his 3rd year with the Wolfpack.

NO KEY INJURIES TO DATE
