Georgia Southern vs Texas State : Werts hasn’t attempted more than nine passes in each of Georgia Southern’s games this year, but he hasn’t needed to – he’s a true dual-threat quarterback. Werts has rushed for 454 yards (third in the Sun Belt) and eight touchdowns this season.
Werts has two 100-yard games under his belt, and he’s coming off an 85-yard, three-touchdown (two rushing, one passing) performance against South Alabama last week. He’s thrown for 363 yards and four touchdowns this season and has yet to throw an interception. Werts will stand a good chance at topping the 100-yard rushing mark Thursday against a Texas State defense that’s allowing 168.4 rushing yards per game this year.
Texas State entered the 2018 season having earned seven wins over the last three seasons. And with a daunting portion of their Sun Belt schedule awaiting, chances for the Bobcats to notch wins from this point on are just that much slimmer.Georgia Southern vs Texas State
