Coastal Carolina vs Northern Illinois: Tailgreeter Cure Bowl, What’s Going To Happen
Coastal Carolina will be too offensively sharp. The time off will help QB Grayson McCall and all of the banged up parts to be a bit stronger, and Northern Illinois will start to make mistakes when it has to press.
The Huskies, though, will be effective enough on the ground to keep this close. Coastal Carolina can control the clock with its short passing game, but it won’t be able to pull away after getting off to a strong start.
No, Northern Illinois won’t be able to pound away like it did against Kent State in the MAC Championship, but it’ll have moments throughout the game when it controls the tempo. It won’t be enough, though, to pull this off late.
