The Troy Trojans and Coastal Carolina Chanticleers face off on Thursday in a Sun Belt Conference college football showdown at Brooks Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020, Coastal Carolina came away with the 42-38 victory. 

Troy comes into this game with a 4-3 record overall and they have won each of the last two games. Even three games ago against South Carolina, Troy held them to 23 points, and they only lost by nine points. In the last game, Troy beat Texas State, 31-28. Troy is averaging 25.3 points while the defense is giving up 19.6 points per game. Gunnar Watson got the start under center in the last game for Troy throwing for 182 yards and a touchdown. On the season, Troy has thrown for 521 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Kimani Vidal has had a big game on the ground rushing for 449 yards, and four touchdowns. 

On the other side of this matchup is Coastal Carolina who won their first six games of their season, before losing their last game against Appalachian State. The offense scored 27 points, which isn’t terrible, but with how much success the offense has had, that was a disappointment. Only seven of those points came in the second half, and they need to play more complete games going forward. Coastal Carolina has scored 45.7 points while the defense is giving up 17.1 points per game. Grayson McCall has thrown for 1.769 yards, 15 touchdowns, and one interception. Reese White and Shermari Jones have both rushed for over 400 yards, This is a run-first team overall, and when they are having the most success, it’s been the running game they have leaned on.
