Georgia Southern is coming off its worst defensive performance in the Jeff Monken era in terms of yards allowed, and points given up to a Southern Conference opponent following last Saturday’s 44-34 loss at Samford. Edwin Jackson, one of the Eagle defenders who had a good day against the Bulldogs, believes the Georgia Southern defense can reverse its fortunes against another set of Bulldogs. “We’ve got to learn from our mistakes, and get back to fundamentals,” the GSU linebacker said.
