The NCAA season is finally here and we have a Saturday filled with college football. In this game the Eastern Michigan Eagles make the trip to Brooks Stadium to take on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eastern Michigan Eagles had an up and down season last year, but did enough to finish with a 7-6 record. The bowl game against Georgia Southern left a sour taste in their mouth when they lost by two points, and they had plenty of chances to win the game.
Mike Glass III is back for his senior season, and the hope is that he is going to be a big difference-maker for this team.
Last season he played in eight games passing for 1,024 yards. He also rushed 72 times for 412 yards and six touchdowns.
Last season the Eagles defense was really strong, but they only have three starters coming back, and there is some question marks.
If the defense isn’t as good as last year, that is going to put more pressure on Glass and the rest of the offense to have more success.
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
On the other side of this matchup is the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers who seem to be stuck in a rut of just being okay.
Last season they showed some flashes of a good team, but they still finished with a 5-7 record and couldn’t make a bowl game.
Sophomore quarterback Fred Payton has the reigns of the offense, and there are a lot of questions about how well he can be this year.
Last year the offense was strong, until they went on their four game losing streak and it just disappeared. If they want success in this game, the defense needs to be good.
On the defensive side of the ball, they are going to be some big problems. They ranked 110th in the country and their best defensive player Jeffrey Gunter decided to transfer to NC State.
There is a good chance they could be the worst defense in all the country.
