Georgia State football enjoyed a BIG conference win over the weekend, beating LA-Monroe 46-14. 

“I don’t have many bad days, but with another victory, it makes this Tuesday a little better,” said Panthers head coach Shawn Elliott to John and Hugh.

GSU set a school records in rushing during Saturday's win with freshman Seth Paige accounting for 145 total yards on the ground and two touchdowns, which Elliott was pleased to see.

“If you look at what we did offensively, Seth Paige just breaks out. These backs have the ability to take it for long distance."

And with multiple records being set, and how well his team played this past weekend, Coach Elliott said it's nice to see the young players coming together.

"The freshmen are really coming into their own. It takes awhile, and they're still not where they need to be; there's still a lot of missed assignments and a lot of things that need to be corrected. I just love the spirit of them, the competitive nature that they have to go out there and continue to work."

It's a short week as the Panthers prepare for another big conference game on Thursday against Troy. The Trojans will have momentum on their side as they roll into Georgia State Stadium on a four game winning streak.

It will also be the 100th game in Georgia State football history.
