Georgia State returns home to put its 4-0 record inside Georgia State Stadium on the line hosting No. 24 Appalachian State for a nationally televised game. It marks the first time the Panthers will host a ranked opponent in program history.

The Panthers enter the game bowl eligible at 6-3 and 3-2 in Sun Belt play, while Appalachian State, coming off a win over South Carolina, is 8-1 and 4-1 in league play.

Georgia State rushed for a school-record 414 yards last Saturday at ULM. It marked the fourth time in five games establishing a new rushing record for the program. Senior Tra Barnett became the first Panther to rush for 1,000 yards in a season while picking up his 10th rushing touchdown of the year.

The game will air nationally on ESPNU and can also be heard 1380 WAOK-AM beginning with the pregame show at 6:30 p.m., with Dave Cohen, Harper LeBel, and Sam Crenshaw calling the action.
