The Louisiana Monroe Warhawks and Coastal Carolina Chanticleers face off on Saturday in a Week 5 college football showdown at Brooks Stadium. When these two teams faced off in November of 2019, the Warhawks won 45-42.
The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers have looked good so far this season winning each of their first four games. Coastal Carolina has already beat Buffalo and Kansas this season and in the last game against UMass they won 53-3. In the last game, quarterback Grayson McCall threw for 162 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Braydon Bennett rushed eight times for 83 yards and a touchdown. Coastal Carolina is averaging 45.5 points while giving up 16 points. Quarterback Grayson Mitchell has had a big season throwing for 901 yards, eight touchdowns, and one interception. Coastal Carolina is a run-first time and they have rushed for over 1000 yards this season.
On the other side of this matchup is the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks who lost their first game of the season against Kentucky, but since that point, they have won back to back games. In the last game against Troy, the defense was strong giving up only 16 points, which led to the 13 point victory. The Warhawks are averaging 17 points per game while their defense is giving up 22.6 points per game. One big problem for the Warhawks is that quarterback Rhett Rodriguez is dealing with a collapsed lung and won’t be able to go in this game. Stepping in his place will probably be Chandler Rogers and he has completed four of passes for 57 yards In this game they are going to need to get good play out of Rogers or this game will get ugly early.
The Warhawks are 6-20-1 against the spread in their last 27 games in October. Coastal Carolina is 7-0-1 against the spread in their last eight games on grass. The under is 10-4 in Louisiana-Monroe’s last 14 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Coastal Carolina’s last five games.
The quarterback situation for Louisiana-Monroe does worry me, and Coastal Carolina is going to have no issue getting the job done in this game. Coastal Carolina is an elite offensive team, and Louisiana-Monroe is going to have no answer. Back Coastal Carolina to win this game and cover the spread.
