What you need to know about Georgia State

The Panthers fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns last week but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 34-31. Despite the defeat, Georgia State got a solid performance out of running back Destin Coates, who rushed for one touchdown and 150 yards on 34 carries.

Coates ran for 546 yards and seven touchdowns as a backup last season and he’s moved into a starting role now that Tra Barnett has graduated. Look for a steady dose of Coates with quarterback Cornelius Brown also helping in the running game after rushing for 64 yards and a score last week.

Meanwhile, East Carolina was first on the board but had to settle for a loss at the end of its contest against the UCF Knights last Saturday. East Carolina ended up on the wrong side of a painful 51-28 walloping at UCF’s hands. The Pirates were down 41-14 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The losing side was boosted by QB Holton Ahlers, who passed for three touchdowns and 215 yards on 29 attempts.

A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Panthers ranked fourth worst in the nation with respect to touchdowns allowed last year, giving up 60. East Carolina experienced some struggles of its own as the Pirates were 12th worst when it came to yards allowed per game last season, with the team giving up 469.3 on average.
