Louisiana (7-1, 5-0 Sun Belt) are well on their way to the Sun Belt Championship game and can clinch a fourth straight west division title with a win tonight. They were last seen pummeling Texas State 45-0 last Saturday in a game where quarterback Levi Lewis threw for 228 yards and three touchdowns while their defense limited the Bobcats to just 42 total passing yards.
Georgia State (4-4, 3-1 Sun Belt) are in a three-way tie with Coastal Carolina and Appalachian State at the top of the east division standings and would need a win here to keep pace. The Panthers won their in-state “GSU” rivalry against Georgia Southern last week 21-14. They were outgained offensively by the Eagles and had less time of possession, but two turnovers proved to tilt the game in their favor.
Here’s all the data you’ll want, and a pick for the game!
Georgia State: 94th overall, 82nd offense, 102nd defense

Louisiana unders have been the way to go this season and we’ll see that once again this evening on a cool night in Lafayette. They could go crazy offensively knowing that they can stamp another division title tonight, but Billy Napier will probably have his guys control the pace of the game for something like a 35-14 victory.
