ATLANTA -- This week's Georgia State Student-Athlete of the Week honor actually goes to five student-athletes - the Panthers' starting offensive line, which paved the way for the most prolific offensive performance in school history and one of the best in Sun Belt Conference annals in Saturday's 52-38 Homecoming victory over Arkansas State.
Georgia State's starting five consists of left tackle Hunter Atkinson, left guard Shamarious Gilmore, center Malik Sumter, right guard Pat Bartlett and right tackle Travis Glover.
That quintet helped the Panthers pile up 722 yards of offense, including 340 yards rushing, both school records.
The complete list of records and milestones:
>52 points - Most vs. FBS opponent, second-most overall
>722 yards of total offense - school record and Top 10 in Sun Belt history
>99 plays - school record
>340 yards rushing - school record
>6 rushing touchdowns - school record
>7 touchdowns - ties school record
>39 first downs - school record, ties Sun Belt record
>39:19 time of possession - school record
>Fifth straight game with 200+ rushing yards
>Seven TD drives coverered an average of 79.9 yards each
Four of the five played all 99 offensive snaps, with Conner Robbins replacing Gilmore for a handful of snaps after a minor injury. Bartlett also plays on the punt team and the PAT-FG unit, meaning that he played 112 snaps in the game.
Georgia State faces another tough test this week as the Panthers play at Coastal Carolina, which features the Sun Belt's leading defense, Saturday at 5 p.m. on ESPN+.
