St. Francis hopes to keep GSU defense off balance Saturday
Savannah State wide receiver Jake Durham, center, finds himself surrounded by Georgia Southern defenders after catching a short pass in the second quarter on Saturday at Paulson Stadium in the season opener for both teams.
Georgia Southern didn’t have too much trouble stopping Savannah State in the season opener last Saturday at Paulson Stadium.

Most impressively, perhaps, was that SSU gained only 21 yards on the ground on 19 carries — a stat that doesn’t much surprise GSU co-defensive coordinator Kevin Corlesss.
