Injuries:

None

Key stat:

VMI has never beaten the Eagles in seven meetings.

Analysis:

Quote:

"That was a tribute to the offensive line. I think they finally got tired of reading the newspapers. Too many times, they're told that this offense starts with the quarterback and fullback, but that's not the case. It starts with the line." -- Georgia Southern quarterback J.R. Revere, on the team's offensive performance against Chattanooga.
