Georgia Southern clinches share of Sun Belt title

The Georgia Southern Eagles have clinched a share of the Sun Belt Conference title in their first season in the conference.

Georgia Southern was off Saturday but clinched a share of the championship when Louisiana lost 35-16 to Appalachian State. The Eagles are 8-3 overall and 7-0 in conference play, while Louisiana is 7-4 and 6-1.

Georgia Southern can clinch the conference title outright with a win in its season finale Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe or if Louisiana loses to Troy.
