What to Know

After two games on the road, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are heading back home. Coastal Carolina and the Troy Trojans will face off in a Sun Belt battle at 7:30 p.m. ET on Thursday at Brooks Stadium. The Chanticleers are out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.

Coastal Carolina scored first but ultimately less than the Appalachian State Mountaineers in their contest on Wednesday. Coastal Carolina fell just short of Appalachian State by a score of 30-27. Coastal Carolina was up 14 to nothing at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead.

Speaking of close games: last week Troy sidestepped the Texas State Bobcats for a 31-28 win. RB Kimani Vidal had a stellar game for the Trojans as he rushed for two TDs and 162 yards on 25 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the game was Vidal’s 51-yard touchdown rush in the first quarter.

The Chanticleers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 18.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Wednesday might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Coastal Carolina is now 6-1 while Troy sits at 4-3. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Coastal Carolina is stumbling into the matchup with the 201st most rushing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 11 on the season. The Trojans have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 136th worst in the nation in touchdowns allowed, with 12 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
