The Georgia State Panthers look to snap a five-game losing streak on Saturday, and notch their first victory of the year, as they play host to the New Hampshire Wildcats in a Colonial Athletic Association showdown.

Georgia State is coming off of an embarrassing 35-3 loss against William & Mary. The Panthers have surrendered at least 33 points in each of their five contests this year, and give up on average 38.4 points per game.

Georgia State's offense hasn't fared much better, as the Panthers have only scored 10 points per game through the team's first five contests.

New Hampshire, by contrast, is coming off of a 34-14 win over Delaware. The Wildcats enter Saturday's contest with a 3-2 record overall, and a 1-1 CAA record. New Hampshire averages 36.6 points per game on offense, so Georgia State's defense could have their work cut out for them on Saturday.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET at the Georgia Dome.
