Coastal Carolina (3-1) vs. Troy (3-1) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Don’t sleep on Coastal Carolina.
It lost to South Carolina to start the season, and then it went on a roll with three straight wins with the offense working well with a blowout win over UAB and a strong performance to beat Louisiana-Lafayette on the road.
Win this, and all of a sudden, the Chanticleers would really and truly be in the mix for the Sun Belt title. And they’re good enough to get there.
Troy got past the blowout loss at home against Boise State to get by Nebraska on the road and get by ULM on the road. The offense hasn’t been as sharp as it was in past years, but the defense has been great at getting into the backfield, and it’s leading to key takeaways.
But Coastal Carolina has the offense.
The running game has been fabulous, and the passing game has been efficient. It’s playing well and isn’t beating itself, but at home, and with Coastal Carolina likely to be without QB Kilton Anderson, the Trojans will survive.
It’ll be a fascinating four quarter fight, with Troy breaking through with a few key third down stops in the second half to turn things around after getting down early.
