Georgia State Vs. William & Mary Preview: Panthers Look For 1st Win

The Georgia State Panthers are trying to break into the win column.

After four games, the Georgia State Panthers are still searching for their first win of the season, and the same is true for their fifth opponent, the William & Mary Tribe.

The Panthers haven't been very competitive in any game so far, and they've been outscored by a combined 157 to 47. Turnovers have been a big part of the problem, as they're averaging three giveaways per game. Offensively, the Panthers have had trouble establishing themselves -- they're averaging 3.3 yards per carry and have completed barely half of their pass attempts.

William & Mary begins the week ranked 32nd in total defense, but the Tribe has been dreadful offensively. That's good news for a Georgia State defense that has had plenty of issues in 2012.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Saturday.
