The Norfolk State Spartans and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers will match up on the college football circuit Saturday.

Norfolk State enters this one at 1-1 overall. The Spartans fell to Old Dominion 24-21 in the opener, but then took out VA State 44-21 last week.

In the Week 2 victory, Norfolk State’s Juwan Carter logged 203 yards with four touchdowns, and Justin Smith led the receivers with 62 yards from two grabs. Aaron Savage was the lead Spartans rusher with 47 yards.

Over on the Coastal Carolina side, they’re 1-1 as well this season, dropping 30-23 to Eastern Michigan in the opener, then squeezing out a 12-7 win over Kansas in game two.

Chanticleers QB Fred Payton posted 98 yards and a TD in the win over Kansas, but Torrance Marable did most of the heavy lifting with 148 yards and one TD on the ground.

The Spartans are 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and 6-1 ATS in the last seven after posting less than 275 yards in their previous game. Norfolk State is 5-1 ATS in the last six after posting less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.

Meanwhile, the Chanticleers are 0-5 ATS in their last five on grass and 0-5 ATS in their last five home games. Coastal is 1-6 ATS in their last seven games after giving up less than 170 pass yards as well.

Norfolk State had a pretty solid game Week 2 versus a lesser opponent, and spread the ball around in the passing game quite well. Still, there are a few improvements to be made.

Realistically I don’t think the Chanticleers have enough offensive firepower to really blow anything out here, so I’m going with the Spartans to cover.
