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.
