Rickenbach CFB Rotation #178 Saturday 8* Troy Trojans (+) vs Georgia Southern Eagles @ 3:30 ET - Great spot for a home dog. The Eagles were on the road last week and got the upset win at previously undefeated Appalachian State. Watch Georgia Southern now come out very flat this week after that huge upset in a weeknight televised game over a team that was 7-0. Certainly the Eagles deserve credit for pulling off the upset but the Mountaineers had 23 first downs compared to just 15 for Georgia Southern. Prior to that victory the Eagles only had one big win this season (41-7) but that came against a horrible New Mexico State team. Their other 3 wins came against Maine (an FCS school) by just a single score and South Alabama (2 OT) and Coastal Carolina (3 OT). In fact 3 of the Eagles last 4 wins have been by just 3 points so you can see why I like having the +3 on our side in this one. Troy is angry after a 1 point loss at Coastal Carolina that dropped them to a surprising 3-5 on the season. I like taking undervalued teams that are due to step up late in the season. The Trojans are off back to back road losses but this is a team that has scored 37 points or more in all 4 of its home games! While the Eagles have the better D, the Trojans are the much better O plus have home field here. Considering all that as well as the situational edge, there was no doubt for me here in terms of backing the home dog. 8* TROY
