The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns meet in Sun Belt conference college football action from Cajun Field on Wednesday night.
The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers will look for a big road win to keep their unbeaten record in tact, sitting at 3-0 after a 52-23 win over Arkansas State last time out. Grayson McCall’s thrown for 728 yards, 9 touchdowns and an interception on 66.7% passing while CJ Marable leads Coastal in rushing with 190 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. McCall also has 139 rushing yards and a pair of TDs from the quarterback position while Sherman Jones has a pair of rushing scores as well. Jaivon Heiligh and Isaiah Likely each have 200+ receiving yards and 3 receiving touchdowns while Kameron Brown also has 137 receiving yards for the Chanticleers this season. Defensively, Teddy Gallagher and Silas Kelly each have a team-high 21 total tackles with Kelly boasting a team-high 15 solo tackles and 3 sacks. C.J. Brewer has a team-high 3.5 sacks and Jeffrey Gunter has 3 sacks as well for Coastal Carolina’s D this season.
The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns will be out to will also look to build on a 3-0 start after a 20-18 win over Georgia Southern last time out. Levi Lewis has thrown for 723 yards, 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions on 57.8% passing while Elijah Mitchell has a team-high 210 rushing yards with a pair of touchdowns and Trey Ragas has 143 rushing yards and a team-high 3 rushing TDs.

Trends will be updated once they’ve been released.
This one is shaping up to be a battle in the Sun Belt to kick off the college football week and while Louisiana has the better win with their opening win over Iowa State, Coastal’s been more convincing in their victories, logging a 15-point win over Kansas before demolishing Arkansas State. I’m not expecting the Chanticleers to flatten Louisiana here, especially at home, but I could see this being a 3-4 point game either way. I’ll take my chances with Coastal Carolina and the points in this one.
