We have reached week five of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. There are still some non conference showdowns and that is the case in this one when the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers make the trip to Veterans Memorial Stadium to take on the Troy Trojans.
Last year when these two teams played the Trojans came out ahead 42-17.
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers have had a really nice season so far this year, and they come into this game with only one loss and that came against South Carolina.
In their last game they took on the Rajin Cajuns and were three-point underdogs but the defense stepped up big in the second half and that led to a 30-28 victory.
The Chanticleers do have a problem with their starting quarterback doubtful for this game. They will turn to freshman quarterback Bryce Carpenter who was decent in the last game throwing for 82 yards and one touchdown.
In this game it’s going to come down to how well the Chanticleers can play around him. He is decent but the other players around him need to step up.
They are going to have their hands full trying to play in this game especially with a backup quarterback, but if they want a chance in this game the offense needs to be better.
On the other side of this matchup is the Troy Trojans who started off the season with a loss but they have been playing lights out since then.
They come into this game having won three straight games, including a huge win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Trojans are led by quarterback Kaleb Baker who has thrown for 734 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions.
The strength of this team as of late has been the defensive side of the ball and that is going to need to be key again in this one.
They need to slow down the Chanticleers early in this game. If the offense can get some confidence going early they could keep it in it and the Trojans need to try and slow it down.
