Chants’ 2014 football slate absent of FBS competition

ccufoot-mogliarunonfieldCoastal Carolina released the Chanticleers’ 2014 football schedule on Wednesday, and this year’s lineup is absent of any guarantee games against FBS members.

Coastal withdrew from its previously planned date at Clemson, giving the pay day to South Carolina State. That cleared the way for a 12-game slate against all FCS schools that is tough but also conducive to another run to the playoffs. In past season, Coastal has played guarantee games at South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, Penn State, Kent State and others from college football’s top level.

Highlights for the two-time defending Big South Champion Chants include five home games, three games versus 2013 co-league champions (South Carolina State, Furman and Liberty), three games versus Southern Conference members, three games versus Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference (MEAC) members, and new Big South member Monmouth.

Coastal opens the season Aug. 30 at The Citadel. This will mark the seventh time CCU has opened a season on the road and the first time the Chanticleers and Bulldogs have met on the gridiron.

Following the opener, the Chants will play three straight games versus MEAC programs, including Coastal Carolina’s home opener versus South Carolina State on Sept. 13, which will be the culmination of the CCU’’s Family Weekend. Coastal will then play return games versus SoCon foes Elon at home Sept. 20 and Furman on the road Oct. 4.

Coastal will begin is defense of the Big South Championship Oct. 11 at Presbyterian College ahead of a bye week. The Chants will close the season playing three of their final five regular-season contests at home. Breaking from the recent Big South rotation, Coastal will host Charleston Southern Oct. 25 for Homecoming and Sasser Athletics Hall of Fame Weekend; host new member Monmouth Nov. 15; and now close the regular season Nov. 22 with Liberty, with whom CCU has shared the league title the last two seasons.

Coastal is a combined 43-14 versus teams on the 2014 schedule with this year being the first time CCU will face The Citadel and Florida A&M.
