Hey, anytime someone wins their first Sun Belt conference game (after quite a few tries), they get the Study Hall treatment. That, and I wanted to share this line from GSU's recap:

Georgia State earned a 34-32 win at New Mexico State Saturday night to earn the program’s first Sun Belt Conference victory and move into first-place in the league.

FIRST PLACE, BABY.

(But seriously, GSU's passing game appears to be getting somewhere.)
