Georgia State Vs. Tennessee 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Spread And More

The Georgia State Panthers head to Knoxville, Tenn. to take on the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday. The game will be the first meeting in football for the two schools.

Georgia State struggled to get anything going offensively as they could muster just 229 yards offensively on a meager 3.9 yards per play.

Georgia State Vs. Tennessee: Bill Curry Wants More Touches For Donald Russell

During a teleconference on Monday, Georgia State head coach Bill Curry admitted that running back Donald Russell didn't get the ball as often as he should have in the Panthers' 33-6 loss to South Carolina State.

"He didn’t get the ball enough in either half," Curry said during today’s CAA teleconference. "We recognized that as soon as the game was over. Several things specific in play-calling that [John] Bond and I got together immediately and realized that we didn’t distribute the ball."
