PICK: I’m sticking with Coastal Carolina. The Jaguars have had a few games where they’ve showcased some potent offensive capabilities, but they’ve also had a few flat outings (like 42-10 versus UAB). The Chanticleers haven’t had a bad game yet and haven’t shown a ton of weaknesses on either side of the ball. I like Coastal Carolina to keep it rolling here and bang out a cover.
