Coastal Carolina hopes to snap its three-game losing skid against a favored Troy squad. The Trojans have won their last two meetings but the improved defense could tilt the tide. If their previous game is to be checked, lots of work is needed. They are giving up 39 points per game in the last three games. The good news is that the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers showed some signs of life against Georgia Southern. Limiting the Eagles to 10 points, they failed to capitalize on that and lost in three overtimes.
