There hasn't been much excitement around the Georgia State Panthers so far this season, as the team has dropped its first three games of 2012. Things don't get any easier this week, as the Panthers host the Richmond Spiders.

Richmond enters Saturday's game with a 2-1 record. The Spiders' only loss came to FBS opponent Virginia in the team's first game.

Saturday will be the first conference game for Georgia State this season. While the team will compete against Colonial Athletic Association opponents, it cannot win the conference title due to the Panthers' impending move to the Sun Belt conference. Old Dominion is in the same situation.

A lot of the pressure Sunday will be on Georgia State's defense, which has been poor so far this season. The Panthers have allowed 122 points in three games.

Game Time & Date: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday

Location: Georgia Dome
