DECATUR, Ga. (WTOC) - Georgia Southern’s Friday night game against archrival Georgia State in Atlanta never got started due to the heavy rain and a tarp issue at State. That game has been postponed to a doubleheader Saturday beginning at 2:00 p.m. to wrap up the regular season.

But even without a game, it was still a productive night for the Eagles.

Georgia Southern has clinched the Sun Belt East Division title, thanks to losses from South Alabama and Coastal Carolina. It’s the first division title for the Eagle baseball program and locks Southern into the #2 seed of next week’s Sun Belt Conference Tournament.
