Why Coastal Carolina Will Win
This isn’t exactly working like it’s supposed to for Arkansas State.
It was coming off a bad 2020, but head coach Butch Jones was a good hire to help change around the defense all while keeping the O going and …
Nope. The D has allowed 52 points or more in three of the last four games, the team is dead last in total defense, and it’s not able to keep up with an offense that lost its running game because the passing attack has to spend so much time bombing away.

What’s Going To Happen
Coastal Carolina is playing too well.
QB Grayson McCall has this attack humming. He’s not missing, the O is ripping through everyone to put games away fast, and against a team that’s getting hit for over 260 rushing yards per game, it’s all going to look pretty on a national stage.
