What to Know

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Kansas Jayhawks at 7:30 p.m. ET Sept. 10 at Brooks Stadium. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.

The Chanticleers ran circles around the Citadel Bulldogs last Thursday, and the extra yardage (613 yards vs. 237 yards) paid off. Coastal Carolina put a hurting on Citadel at home to the tune of 52-14. With Coastal Carolina ahead 31 to nothing at the half, the game was all but over already. They can attribute much of their success to RB Shermari Jones, who punched in two rushing touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Kansas sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 17-14 victory over the South Dakota Coyotes last week. The overall outcome was to be expected, but South Dakota made it more of a matchup than the oddsmakers had predicted. Kansas QB Jason Bean did work as he passed for two TDs and 163 yards on 26 attempts in addition to picking up 53 yards on the ground.

The Chanticleers had enough points to win and then some against the Jayhawks when the two teams previously met in September of last year, taking their game 38-23. Will Coastal Carolina repeat their success, or does Kansas have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
