The 6-4 Georgia St. Panthers might actually be this week’s second-most overmatched Panthers team, but kudos to the 8-2 Alabama Crimson Tide for scheduling both the worst ACC team and the worst CAA team in the same season. The Panthers are the worst CAA team because they’re not even in it yet. Winless in conference! Can you believe it!
Georgia St.‘s best game so far might have been their one-score overtime loss to the Jacksonville St. Gamecocks, who beat the Mississippi Rebels in week one. Bama also beat Ole Miss, and really doesn’t get enough credit for doing that. Way to go, Bama.
If you don’t have a dog in this fight, consider rooting for Bill Curry to crack 100 yards against his former team. Hey, if the Kennesaw St. Owls can beat the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets by double digits in basketball, GSU North can kick a third-quarter field goal against the Tide.
TV time: 7:30 Thursday on ESPNU.
