The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are cruising through the Sun Belt and they’ll have the chance to flex their No. 15 ranking on Saturday when welcoming the South Alabama Jaguars to the teal turf.

Coastal went into Atlanta last Saturday and absolutely put it on Georgia State to the tune of a 51-0 beatdown last Saturday. Dialed in was quarterback Grayson McCall, who threw four touchdowns in the blowout. Defensively, CCU dominated the Panthers by limiting them to just 2.7 yards per play.

South Alabama meanwhile held a seven-point lead on Georgia Southern late in the third quarter before a pair of Wesley Kennedy III touchdowns late doomed them to a loss in Statesboro.
