GSU has an overall record of 8-4-1 and a conference record of 1-0-1 while notching 149 shots on the season and averaging 11.5 shots per game.

A Panther to watch out for is Aris Briggs who has logged 3 goals for the Panthers and 14 total shots while playing a total of 641 minutes on the season.

While the Eagles have a less impressive record of 5-5-2, one could argue it’s only because they’ve had a tougher schedule as their statistics show 160 total shots on the season, giving them an average of 13.3 shots per game. 

An obvious Eagle threat is senior forward Javier Carbonell who leads the Sun Belt with his 13 goals on the season and 45 total shots.

The match will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 20 at Eagle Field and will be streamed on ESPN+.
