Coastal Carolina vs. Kansas, Sept 10

If you’re a Kansas football fan, rejoice while you can. The Jayhawks snapped their 13-game losing streak by squeaking past South Dakota 17-14 last week. Enjoy it while it last Kansas fans because it is looking like it will be short-lived here. This Coastal Carolina team was highly overlooked last season, after being burned for multiple weeks, the books finally started to show this team some respect with their lines. Now nobody will be caught off guard as this team started the season ranked inside the top 25. Coastal picked up right where they left off, thumping The Citadel 52-14. Can Kansas keep the momentum going and pull off this massive upset? Can Coastal continue their dominance over the Jayhawks?

Coastal Carolina:
This team has gotten some recognition behind their name, but the line seems to be a smaller than it should be here. It seems odd to say, but only 26.5 points seems a little light here. Kansas did put up a bit of a fight, only losing by 15, but the team did not win a game the entire season. McCall is back at the helm for Coastal, and the dual threat quarterback picked up right where he left off last season, throwing for 262 yards and a touchdown. Even more impressive, McCall was 16-19 and spread the ball around, hitting multiple receivers and running twice for 24 yards. Coastal has an even more impressive backfield that puts their offense over the top. A trio of running backs were featured in the first game, and they all had dominate performances. Each running back scored a touchdown, and two of them got two trips to the end zone. To put it all into perspective Coastal ran for 207 yards and passed for 262, this Kansas defense has their work cut out for them trying to figure out how to slow down this offense.

Not in Kansas Anymore:
It’s been a long time since Kansas could celebrate a win, but finally last week they were able to celebrate a victory. Even though the win was against a small school in South Dakota it was important since the Jayhawks started a new coaching regime under Lance Leipold. This Kansas offense is looking like they are going to live by the run. In week one they ran the ball 41 times, the only problem being they were only able to get 82 yards on those 41 carries and that was against a defense that is most likely going to be a lot easier challenge than the Coastal defense is going to be. Kansas did attempt 26 passes, but they were only able to come up with 163 yards. It’s safe to say they are going to need a lot more offensive production to be able to keep up in this one.

Coastal Carolina vs. Kansas: The Pick
Coastal should be more of a favorite and maybe before game time this one will get over the 28 point range where it should be. This is a good time to place your bets while the spread is still 26.5. This game is going to be all Coastal Carolina, Kansas will not be able to slow down the fast-paced and well-balanced Coastal offense. Look for Coastal to pour on the points with their fast-paced offense, play them at -26.5.
