Eagles step into deadly coliseum

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time again where the Eagles are scheduled to do battle against a top notch FBS football team—the University of Georgia Bulldogs.

The Eagles have done a pretty decent job in their conference this year, the Bulldogs as well. But this weekend, one team has to face defeat, and I believe that it will be the Eagles, unfortunately.

The fact is that UGA has a bigger, stronger and more agile team than GSU, and there’s no way that the Athens squad is going to let up just because they are playing a smaller division team on the second-to-last game of the regular season.

Compared to GSU, the Bulldogs have a much stronger and more experienced quarterback who is able to maximize his passing yardage every game. Aaron Murray, so far, has over 2,000 yards passing on the season and averages over 200 yards per game. Although he’s in the negative in rushing yards, he still dominates on the field with that powerful arm.

The Eagles on the other hand, have two quarterbacks who aren’t really as experienced as Murray is, nor even close with their passing yards. The interesting aspect in this game, though, is that both team’s quarterbacks have their strong and weak points. The Eagles aren’t too strong in the air, and the Bulldogs aren’t too great on the ground.

As we all know, there are a multitude of UGA fans here in the ‘Boro, and I’m curious to see which way those double-dipping fans swing this weekend.

Whichever team they choose to support is up to them, but at the end of the day I can see the Eagles falling to the Bulldogs 45-28.
