Old Dominion Vs. Georgia State Preview: Panthers host Monarchs

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

The Georgia State Panthers welcome the Old Dominion Monarchs to the Georgia Dome this Saturday.

The Georgia State Panthers hope to carry over some momentum from their fourth quarter against James Madison this past weekend when they host the Old Dominion Monarchs.

Georgia State (1-8, 1-5 CAA) staged a furious fourth quarter rally against heavily favored James Madison on Saturday before falling just short. The Panthers trailed 28-7 early in the final frame before scoring two touchdowns to close the gap to 28-21. However, the Panthers would not make it any closer. The seven-point loss was the first single-digit loss for the Panthers this season.

Things will not get any easier for Georgia State, as Old Dominion brings a 7-1 record (4-1 CAA) to the Georgia Dome this Saturday. The Monarchs escaped with a 31-26 win over Delaware on Saturday. Sophomore quarterback Taylor Heinicke completed 36-of-45 passes for 375 yards. Earlier this season, Heinicke set a Division I-record 730 yards passing in a win over New Hampshire.

Kickoff for Georgia State and Old Dominion is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.
