Does Georgia State have the ability to beat Auburn through the air?

·1 min read

Georgia State currently has one of the nation’s worst passing attacks, averaging 119.0 passing yards per game (121st nationally). Georgia State has elected to focus more on the run in their spread-option scheme.

Zac Blackerby of the “Locked on Auburn” podcast sat down with Ben Moore of 247 sports to talk about whether or not the Panthers have enough in the tank to expose Auburn through the air.

Here is what Ben Moore had to say about the Panthers’ passing attack.

Moore: “I think that’s the plan. That’s the biggest thing ultimately with the RPO game. You want to build on that and lull some of those safeties and linebackers in. It’s about eye discipline. (Georgia State) certainly has enough weapons to do that. Sam Pinckney was the guy that caught 44 passes last year. He’s one of the best Sun Belt receivers out there… (Georgia State) doesn’t really have any burners, in terms of wide receivers.”
