What to know
The South Alabama Jaguars will be returning home from a three-game road trip. The Jaguars and Coastal Carolina Chanticleers will go head-to-head in a Sun Belt battle at 3:30 p.m. ET on Friday at Hancock Whitney Stadium. Coastal Carolina will still be in high form after a win, while South Alabama will look to get back into the winning column.
South Alabama dealt a serious blow to the Tennessee Volunteers last Saturday, with a score of 60-14. South Alabama fell into a difficult situation in the first half, with the score being 35-7. A silver lining for them is the play WR Jalen Tolbert, who caught seven passes for a TD and 143 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Tolbert’s 68-yard TD reception in the fourth round.
Meanwhile, they all went 14-14 in the first half for the Coastal Carolina and Texas State Bobcats this past Saturday, but the Chanticleers stepped up in the second half to win 35-21. Coastal Carolina’s QB Grayson McCall burned, passing five TDs and 319 yards in 28 attempts along with picking up 53 yards on the ground. Near the top of the reels stand out McCall’s 52-yard TD bomb to WR Cameron Brown in the third quarter.
The jaguars must know that they will be fighting an uphill battle with a 15-point margin that they are up against. Those who bet on them with odds should not place much expectations on them as the team is getting 1-3 ATS when it is expected to lose.
South Alabama is now at 5-6 while the Chanticleers sit at 9-2. Some defensive stats to watch out for: South Alabama is 197th in the nation behind in hasty touches allowed, with 18 points for the season. Coastal Carolina is on a par with them: they are hitting the 197th fastest allowed touchdown in the nation, after dropping 18 out of the season. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
