UNC Wilmington has been very impressive this season and come into this game tied for the best conference record in the CAA. The College of Charleston has had a decent season and was able to sneak out a win against Delaware yesterday. The College of Charleston plays very good defense, but is not a very good offensive team. UNC Wilmington is the much better offensive team and I like them to advance here.
