What’s Going To Happen
Louisiana and Georgia State don’t do the exact same things, but they’re not far off. Each one has a mobile playmaking quarterback, and each one has a deep and talented backfield. Coastal Carolina had issues with Louisiana, and it shut down Georgia State to a dead stop.
And it won both games.
Malik Willis is a good enough quarterback to make the Liberty passing game go, and this is the type of chip-on-its-shoulder program that’s going to come out roaring after being dismissed following the close loss to NC State. It beat Georgia Southern from the Sun Belt in last year’s Cure Bowl, but …
Coastal Carolina will pull through.
Liberty is just that good, the running game will work, and the defensive front won’t get powered on, but the Chanticleers are still in a rhythm after playing just two weeks ago. The Flames haven’t played for a month.
It’ll be a close, fun game that should be the best and most even matchup of the bowl season. Coastal Carolina will complete the dream season by holding on with a great late defensive stop.
