In the last game against Texas State, Coastal Carolina was able to come away with the 35-21 victory. One problem for Coastal Carolina is their star quarterback Grayson McCall is out. Bryce Carpenter has stepped in to fill the void and he has thrown for 483 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. The Chanticleers are averaging 41.6 points while their defense is giving up 19.9 points per game. The Chanticleers are a run first team, and they have four different running backs who have put up at least 485 yards on the ground.

The defense was a big issue, giving up 60 points and that led to the blowout defeat.

Under center for South Alabama has been Jake Bentley who has thrown for 2,122 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
The under is 4-0 in Coastal Carolina’s last four road games.The under is 4-0 in Coastal Carolina’s last four games as a road favorite. The over is 9-1-1 in Jaguars last 11 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Carpenter has looked good for Coastal Carolina, but this still isn’t a player I have complete trust in. I think South Alabama is going to find enough offensive success through the air to keep this game close. It might not be the prettiest game, but they will find a way to squeak out a cover late. Back South Alabama against the spread.
