Georgia State named ‘best non-P5 team’ Tigers play all season

Auburn football couldn’t go about business as a road underdog during Penn State’s famous White Out game last Saturday, but they are set to get back on their way to victory this weekend. .

Georgia State of the Sunbelt will march south on I85 for the Tigers’ third home game of the year two weeks after Alabama State made the reverse trip two Saturdays ago.

Panthers coach Shawn Elliot was far from silent going into the 3 p.m. morning, saying Georgia State barely prepared and didn’t worry about the Tigers and even knocked down the Eagle flight from ‘pre-game.

Mr. Elliot, with all due respect those words are going to fall like a plate of Live Oaks shrimp and grits for you after 60 minutes of playing with Bryan Harsin’s men.

Despite the expected loss – the gap is -27 for Auburn football at the moment – there has already been a moral victory for Panther fans who decide to cheer their team on the Plains tomorrow in a unbalanced defeat.

Nathan King of 247Sports called Georgia State the best non-Power Five team the AU will play this season:

“Georgia State is the best non-Power Five 5 team Auburn will face this season, and it’s not particularly close. As such, Shawn Elliott’s club should be more competitive than Akron or Alabama State, but it’s still a game where Auburn’s formidable running defense and powerful rushing offense should call for blows and lead to a significant margin of victory.

Against the army and the UNC, GSU ​​was lost in defense and overwhelmed offensively. The scenario was reversed in a solid victory last week over Charlotte that saw the Panthers backfield rushing for 282 yards.

That said, Auburn’s football should flip the script once again and hit a team whose coach may have bitten off a lot more than he can chew.
