New head coach Willie Fritz and Georgia Southern narrowly missed out on their first win as an FBS program a week ago, blowing a 10-point second half lead in a 24-23 loss to N.C. State on Aug. 30. The Eagles were in no such danger on Saturday, jumping out to a 76-0 lead on Savannah State before coasting to an 83-9 victory.
Ten Georgia Southern runners combined for 599 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on 11.3 yards per carry, and two passers completed 4-of-5 attempts for 96 yards and two touchdowns. There will never be an easier win for Fritz's entire tenure at Georgia Southern, and the Eagles are still in search of their first FBS vs. FBS win.
None of that mattered, though, as the victorious Eagles celebrated like the Walton family had just bestowed its entire fortune upon them.
