Villanova vs. Georgia State: John Bond and Panthers will look to avoid turnovers

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Georgia State Panthers will try to win two games in a row for the first time since 2010.

Following Georgia State's first win of the season, Panthers offensive coordinator John Bond will concentrate on winning the turnover battle against Villanova. Last week, the Panthers did not give up a turnover or allow a sack against Rhode Island.

Other keys to the game last week were avoiding silly penalties and taking an early lead. Once the Panthers were on top, they turned to running back Donald Russell and didn't look back.

Said coach Bond:

"It was good. We knew going in that it was going to be a big Donald day. ... Once we got up 14 we were able to settle down and feed him."

Looking toward his team's upcoming matchup with Villanova, Bond recognizes the athleticism of the Wildcat defensive ends. It will be a new type of challenge for the Panthers, who are looking for their second win in a row. The Villanova defense ranks second in the Colonial Athletic Association in points and yards allowed per game.
