2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Over'
The Georgia Southern Eagles finished 7-4 last year and they ended the season with a momentous victory over the Florida Gators in Gainesville. Last year the Eagles played in in the Southern Conference (1-AA) and this season will be their first official season in the Sun Belt. New head coach Willie Fritz will also be climbing to Division 1-A status and I believe they have a stronger team this year then last year.
The success the Eagles had last year was all based on their defense and they their opponents under 21 points the last four games of the year. Starting quarterback Kevin Ellison had an outstanding game against Florida and with that experience his sophomore season in a new conference should an eye opener.With an offense that will be more two-dimensional and a defense that is quick and hits hard the Eagles will be fun to watch.
The Eagles have a brutal road schedule, playing seven road games overall, and they end their season playing UL-Monroe at home. The Sun Belt schedule is a step up from their normal Southern Conference schedule. And if they can compete and steal two road games they might manage a .500 record.
I think that five is a sound number for this team and in some of my power rankings I have the Eagles staying under. But if Ellison has success passing that will give him more options to run in the second half and we could see some victories come out of nowhere.I like the 'over' for this team because with their experience on both sides of the ball I see them surprising the Sun Belt during their rookie season.
