Coastal Carolina (3-3) vs. UMass (2-5) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
UMass might be losing, but it’s losing in really, really fun ways. It’s getting into shootout after shootout, and while the offense might be hanging more than 40 points on the board over the last few weeks, the defense is giving up the points just as quickly.
The Minutemen aren’t even close to stopping the run, they’re giving up too many easy third down tries, and they’re getting killed by turnovers.
This week, though, it’ll be about the run defense against Marcus Outlaw and a Chanticleer attack that’s rushed fro 272 yards or more in four of the last five games.
CCU is just good enough in the secondary to get by, and the offense is strong enough to keep up the pace – maybe. It hasn’t been able to do it over the last few weeks, and UMass is rested, but …
The Coastal Carolina running attack will overcome a huge day from the Minutemen passing game. Enjoy the shootout in what should be a game full of haymakers.
