The Eagles are going into their tenth game of the season and their final game at home. Here are four things we know about the upcoming game against Troy:
Both teams are 7-2
The Trojans hold an overall record of 7-2 like the Eagles, but they’re undefeated in the conference being 5-0. Their only two losses are to No. 22 ranked Boise State and Liberty University.
Troy has also pulled over wins over teams like ULM, Coastal Carolina, and Georgia State. On the other hand, the Eagles will be looking to bounce back after ULM beat them 44-25.
The Eagles are 6-11 against the Trojans
First meeting in 1934 Troy’s taken most of the wins over GS and currently holds a win streak of one.
When the Eagles faced-off against Troy last season it was Chad Lunsford’s first game as head coach after the firing of Tyson Summers, and the Eagles fell 38-16 earing their seventh loss of the 2017 season.
It’s senior day for the Eagles
Along with it being the last home game of the regular season, GS will honor their seniors Saturday.
There are 14 seniors on the Eagle’s roster, including big play makers Wesley Fields and Logan Hunt.
GS is a 1.5-point favorite
Even after their loss to ULM, the Eagles remain in favor for their final home game of the season.
The Eagles have yet to lose a game at home with the help of the Power of Paulson and look to continue that undefeated streak.
Kickoff is to take place in Paulson Stadium on Saturday at 1 p.m. and will be streamed on ESPN3.
