Why Coastal Carolina can cover
Redshirt sophomore quarterback Grayson McCall is second in the Sun Belt Conference with 252.7 passing yards per game. McCall has completed 77 percent of his passes for 1,769 yards and 15 passing touchdowns. The North Carolina native has been able to protect the ball, only tossing one interception on the season.
McCall had a great two-week stretch against Louisiana-Monroe and Arkansas State. He went a perfect 13 of 13 for 212 yards and two passing touchdowns against Louisiana-Monroe. The following week facing Arkansas State, McCall went 18 of 23 for 365 yards with a season-high four passing touchdowns. He has been nearly flawless through seven games and will look to continue that against the Trojan defense.
Why Troy can cover
Troy’s defense has been playing exceptionally well this season. The Trojans are ranked first in scoring and total defense in the Sun Belt Conference. Troy allows 285.9 total yards per game with 17.1 points per contest. The Trojans have also generated plenty of pressure on the quarterback. They are first in the nation with 30 sacks on the year. Troy has recorded multiple sacks in every victory this season.
Troy has also stuffed its opponents behind the line of scrimmage, tallying 66 tackles for loss on the year. Six players on the defense have recorded at least six tackles for loss. Getting pressure upfront will be a point of emphasis for Troy’s defense to slow down Coastal Carolina’s high-powered offense.
