South Alabama at Georgia Southern, 7:30 p.m. on ESPN
South Alabama is currently on top of the Sun Belt West Division with a 2-0 record but don't let Georgia Southern's 1-2 conference record fool you. The Eagles' two losses were to teams that were ranked at the time (Louisiana, Coastal Carolina). These two offenses go against type as it relates to their mascots. The Jaguars are third in the conference in passing offense while the Eagles are second in rushing offense.
This will be Steve Addazio's debut as Colorado State head coach while Fresno State's Kalen DeBoer last to Hawaii last week in his first game at the helm. The Bulldogs gave up more than 300 rushing yards in their loss to the Rainbow Warriors so look for the Rams to try to exploit that as well.
