What you need to know about Coastal Carolina

It was all tied up 14-14 at the half for Coastal Carolina and the Buffalo Bulls last Saturday, but Coastal Carolina stepped up in the second half for a 28-25 win. Coastal Carolina running back Shermari Jones was one of the most active players for the team, rushing for one touchdown and 149 yards on 16 carries.

With wins over The Citadel, Kansas and Buffalo, the Chanticleers are up to No. 17 in the AP Top 25 and Grayson McCall continues to look like a dark horse Heisman Trophy candidate. McCall is averaging an absurd 12.5 yards per pass attempt to lead a Coastal Carolina offense that is averaging 504.7 yards and 43.0 points per game.

What you need to know about Massachusetts

Meanwhile, UMass came up short against the Eastern Michigan Eagles last Saturday, falling 42-28. The Minutemen took two losses to ACC schools to open their season but looked more competitive against Eastern Michigan, piling up 519 yards of total offense.

Brady Olson went 22-of-38 for 288 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in the loss and Ellis Merriweather ran 23 times for 142 yards while adding two catches for 20 yards. The Chanticleers have given up 219.7 yards per game on the ground, so another big game from Merriweather could be the formula for UMass to keep itself in the game.
