Marshall's Herd thundering into town
GS Football
Georgia Southern wide receiver Derwin Burgess Jr., right, gets a foot down in the end zone for 22-yard touchdown grab behind James Madison Chauncey Logan to put the Eagles up 43-38 with 1:10 left in the game at Paulson Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 15.
The Georgia Southern Eagles have had a couple extra days to prepare for Saturday’s Sun Belt matchup against Marshall and are hoping that will benefit them as they look to become bowl eligible. The Herd own a 4-2 lifetime edge over Georgia Southern but the two teams haven’t played since 1996. The Eagles are currently 5-5 after losing last Thursday to Louisiana on the road in a game in which both the offense and defense had their issues.
