Buffalo @ Coastal Carolina
Current Records: Buffalo 0-2; Coastal Carolina 2-0
What to Know
Considering their sizeable disadvantage in the spread, the Buffalo Bulls can expect to have a real challenge on their hands Saturday. They will take on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers on the road at 1 p.m. ET at Brooks Stadium. Buffalo will be seeking to avenge the 28-25 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Sept. 18 of last year.
The Bulls didn’t finish too far behind, but the team still lost 37-31 to the Holy Cross Crusaders last week.
Meanwhile, Coastal Carolina didn’t have too much breathing room in their matchup with the Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs last week, but they still walked away with a 31-27 win. QB Grayson McCall and WR Tyson Mobley were among the main playmakers for Coastal Carolina as the former passed for three TDs and 308 yards on 30 attempts and the latter snatched two receiving TDs. Mobley hadn’t helped his team much against the Army West Point Black Knights two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
Coastal Carolina’s defense was a force to be reckoned with, as it collected two interceptions and three fumbles. CB Lance Boykin picked up that interception and then proceeded to rub salt in the wound by taking it back the other way for a touchdown.
Coastal Carolina’s victory lifted them to 2-0 while Buffalo’s defeat dropped them down to 0-2. We’ll see if Coastal Carolina’s success rolls on or if the Bulls are able to steal their positive momentum.
