Louisiana-Lafayette Loss Guarantees Share of Sun Belt Title for Georgia Southern

Georgia Southern can claim the Sun Belt outright against ULM, but win or lose the Eagles will fly a new flag at Paulson Stadium next year.

Georgia Southern fans dug deep this weekend, daring to pull for the hated Appalachian State Mountaineers to beat the Louisiana Cajuns and give them a shot at the outright Sun Belt title.

Well, App State took care of business. I'll still hate you tomorrow Mountaineers, but thank you.

Winning a conference title on a bye week? That's a hell of a way to spend a Saturday, Eagle Nation.

For their part, App now looks dangerous with a five-game winning streak.

But that damn bowl ban is still there. Wump wump.

Southern can actually lose Saturday and back into an all-out title if Troy upsets ULL. But no, it won't be necessary.
