The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers beat Texas State 35-21 Saturday to improve to 9-2 on the season but that clearly wasn’t enough for the players. They decided they needed a bigger challenge.
So @CoastalFootball celebrated their victory over Texas State with a eating competition against @joeyjaws himself. EPIC. @sila_SK_elly @OuversonCharles @Trey_sammie65 @willykorn @CoachColtonKorn pic.twitter.com/JkLT2G43Dx— Emily Van Buskirk (@Emilnem) November 20, 2021
Yes, you read that correctly. Coastal Carolina’s players decided to challenge competitive eating legend Joey “Jaws” Chestnut to a pizza-eating contest after the game. Chestnut went to San Jose State and was able to secure the win in the competition, although there may not have been great rules enforcement in this one.
Coastal Carolina is never going to be considered for the College Football Playoff, so this is a great way for the players to celebrate what is yet another successful season under head coach Jamey Chadwell. He’ll likely be sought after for several openings in the ACC, with Virginia Tech, Duke and Miami all seemingly set to undergo coaching changes. For now, the Chanticleers can just enjoy their wins and pizza.
