Three storylines for Saturday’s 3:30 p.m. game between Georgia State and Richmond at the Georgia Dome:
1. Can Georgia State’s offense do something? The offense has scored three touchdowns in three games. Two drives were led by starting quarterback Ben McLane and one by backup Ronnie Bell. The lack of production can be traced to poor execution, bad luck and the opponent’s skill and strategy. But the team has playmakers in running back Donald Russell, who has averaged 7.1 yards per carry, and wide receiver Albert Wilson, who caught an 84-yard touchdown pass, the longest in school history, in last week’s loss to Texas-San Antonio.

The defense has yet to post a sack, which means opponents’ wide receivers usually have time to get open.
