Arkansas Sate (5-4) vs. Coastal Carolina (5-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Arkansas State has had a rocky season, but with a win it becomes bowl eligible, and it sets up a showdown with ULM next week to have a shot at the Sun Belt West title – if it gets a little help along the way.
Coastal Carolina is done in the East race, but it’s a win away from becoming bowl eligible. With a good defense and a terrific running game, it’s good enough to grind down the high-octane Red Wolves that lead the league in total offense.
ASU’s problem has been a run defense that’s getting hit for 200 yards or more on a regular basis. When holding teams to under the 200 mark, it’s 4-0. That’s a problem against Marcus Outlow and a Chanticleer ground game that averages 232 per game and has rushed for 250 or more in three of the last four outings. Same thing as ASU in the reverse – Coastal Carolina is 0-3 when running for under 200 yards.
Coastal Carolina will run for 200 yards. By doing that, it’ll control the game, keep the ASU O off the field, and it’ll get to six wins.
