The No. 25 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers hoped into the rankings and will take on the Georgia Southern Eagles at home on Saturday.

Coastal Carolina remains undefeated at 4-0 and is coming off a big win over then-ranked No. 21 Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns. Grayson McCall completed 17 of 24 passes for 202 yards and threw for two touchdowns. He rushed for 45 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Jaivon Heiligh caught eight passes for 108 yards and caught one touchdown. Coastal Carolina never trailed and won on a 40-yard field goal from Massimo Biscardi.

Georgia Southern comes in with a 3-1 record with its lone loss coming on the road to Louisiana. The Eagles are coming off a 41-0 home win over the Massachusetts Minutemen, which played their first game of the season. Quarterback Shai Werts completed 12 of 17 passes for 127 yards and three touchdowns. Tight end Beau Johnson caught a pair of touchdowns. Wesley Kennedy III ran the ball just six times but rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown.

Georgia Southern won the last two games of this series including a 30-27 victory at home in 2019.

The Best Bet

Will Coastal Carolina look past Georgia Southern after coming off a big win? It shouldn’t because Georgia Southern probably should’ve beaten Louisiana as well but lost in the final seconds. The Chanticleers are in the Top 25, and they will continue to cruise through their schedule at home on Saturday.
