This is an interesting matchup because it is Coast Carolina’s first year in FBS and UAB’s first year back. Not exactly an ESPN marquee game but at least there is a story line there.
Not that anyone should need it but Coastal Carolina got an extra week to prepare after winning their FBS debut against UMass.
They might be a contender in the Sun Belt this season.
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
The Chanticleers won their opener without even passing for 100 yards.
They were dominant on the ground though, rushing for more than 300 yards. That approach can certainly work again on the road in this matchup.
Osharmar Abercrombie might be a name to follow after rushing for 149 yards in the opener. He is fast and powerful and the UAB defense looks pretty soft after taking on Ball State last week.
This looks like a good matchup as Coastal really struggled to defend the passing attack of UMass. The Blazers prefer to keep it on the ground as well.
UAB is going to be an interesting story for a little while as they dropped big time football a little while ago only to bring it back this season.
I kind of like the idea that that is possible, even though it is obviously a difficult way to build a program.
This is a run first team and as such they can have some success when the precision is there. They are not going to maul anyone up front but should be able to move the ball against Coastal.
With both teams wanting to run the ball it may give their defense some breather. If they are not able to slow the Chanticleers there will be a lot of pressure on their own offense.

I suppose the fact that Coastal Carolina is favoured on the road means that there is a pretty big gap between these two teams. Also their one win was against FBS competition.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Coastal Carolina -3
I think Coastal Carolina is going to be a really nice value at this current number. Winning on the road is no gimme but Legion Field is not going to be rocking for this one.
The key will be which team is able to stop the run better. My money is on the Chanticleers…but nobody is an expert on Coastal Carolina football just yet.
