Featured Game | Troy Trojans vs. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
Why Troy can cover
While quarterback Gunnar Watson and the Trojan offense can occasionally pick up big points, it’s Troy’s defense that won the West. The Trojans allowed almost 16.8 points per game, good for the second-best mark in the sun belt. The Trojans have won multiple games this season while scoring just 10 points. Watson can occasionally lead big goalscorers but head coach Jon Sumrall seems quite content to play defensively and contain his opponents.
There’s a chance the Chanticleers could be without Sun Belt Player of the Year quarterback Grayson McCall. If Coastal Carolina is forced to play backup, Troy should have little trouble shutting down the Chanticleers and could win by multiple points.
Why Coastal Carolina can cover
It’s not yet clear if McCall will miss the game. However, if he does play, Coastal Carolina should be able to at least muster enough offense to keep the game tight. McCall’s Player of the Year award is well deserved. His 257.1 yards per game average was the third best in the conference. He threw just one interception in nine games played. He is the first player in Conference history to win three Player of the Year awards.
Redshirt senior Sam Pinckney is the top target on offense. Pinckney’s 76 receiving yards per game is good for the fourth-best grade in the conference. He has hit the end zone twice this season.
