Georgia State Vs. James Madison Preview: Panthers take on the Dukes

Georgia State visits James Madison with an upset on their minds Saturday.


The Georgia State Panthers head to Harrisonburg, Va. to take on the James Madison Dukes on Saturday. The Panthers have stumbled to a 1-4 league record in their final season as a Colonial Athletic Association member, but still can play spoiler for a JMU squad that has its eyes on the conference crown.

The Panthers lost last Saturday in blowout fashion to first-place Villanova. That came a week after Georgia State was able to grab their first win of the year by defeating Rhode Island.

James Madison comes into the game with a 3-1 league record, tied in the loss column with Villanova and New Hampshire, who occupy the top spots. The Dukes' last-ditch comeback attempt fell six points short as they fell behind big in the second half last Saturday. The loss to Richmond dropped JMU out of first-place in the CAA. James Madison was No. 2 in the FCS rankings prior to that defeat.

Game time is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.
