Georgia State beat Tennessee last year. HOWEVER.

They they lost 57-10 to Western Michigan two weeks later. The best tam they played was App. St. who beat them 56-27. They scored 406 points and gave up 471. They lost by 3 to a 3-9 team and beat a 2-10 team by 13. They lost their last 2 games (including their bowl game) by 20+ points and lost 4 of their last 5 games. The Tennessee win was a fluke much like (on a much smaller scale) VT beating Ohio State in the first game of the season the year Ohio St. won the national championship. Ga. St. finished 7-6 last season. The previous 3 seasons they were 2-10, 7-5 and 3-9.

That being said, for the last 4 years we have been among the absolute worst teams in college football. Last year, we showed some improvement especially in the close losses to Cincinnati and USM (at least on offence, the defense gave up over 100 points in those 2 games).

Bottom line: This game should be a good guage on our progress. We are playing a team that, prior to the last 4 years, we would have always been favored. We don't know how good or bad they are. They lost a close game to La. Lafayette. A win of any magnitude would be a step forward. A loss would indicate progress could take a long time. A win by 2 TD's or more is what we need but a 1 point win would suffice.
