The Army Black Knights and Coastal Carolina Chanticleers face off on Saturday in a Week 1 college football showdown at Brooks Stadium. 

Army finished last season with a 9-4 record and that included a win over Missouri in the Armed Forces Bowl to finish the season. Head coach Jeff Monken is back in charge this season and there is chatter that this could be his best team yet. Army runs the triple option attack and the goal in this game to run the ball at Coastal Carolina as many different ways as possible. Tyhier Tyler is expected to start under center, and he led the team in rushing back in 2020. The defense is often overlooked because the talk is always about the offense, but the defense is good. Andre Carter is a pass rusher that will probably play in the NFL, that’s how good he is. 

On the other side of this matchup is Coastal Carolina who finished last season with an 11-2 record overall and they hope they can win another Sun Belt title this season. Many believed Grayson McCall might go to the NFL but he has returned for another season, and they need him to have a big game here. McCall is a duel threat quarterback that is going to try to spread the ball all over the field to find success. The offense for Coastal Carolina gets the attention but the defense was also good last year. In this game, if Coastal Carolina can slow down the run, they can find success here. 

The under is 6-2 in Army’s last eight games against the Sun Belt. The over is 4-1 in Coastal Carolina’s last five home games. The over is 16-4 in Coastal Carolina’s last 20 games in September. 

Most think of both of these teams' offenses, but I expect it’s going to be the defenses that get the upper hand in this game. Coastal Carolina’s defense is going to find a way to slow down Army here, and the Black Knights's offense is going to slowdown the pace of Coastal Carolina. Army is also going to grind the clock and this game is going to stay under the total. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
