Chants’ hot offense makes quick work of Minutemen

Coastal Carolina football scored 42 points in the first half en route to a 62-28 blowout win over the Massachusetts Minutemen on Saturday afternoon at McGuirk Alumni Stadium in Amherst, Mass.

The 62 points scored by the Chants in the win are the most since posting 70 points in a win over Charleston Southern in 2010 (Nov. 20, 2010) and are the sixth-most points scored in a game in program history.

The 42 points in the first half tied the school record set back at North Greenville in 2003 (Sept. 25).

The Chants improve to 3-0 all-time versus UMass and push its winning streak to three-straight games, tying a program-record since moving to the FBS level in 2017.

Coastal’s offense totaled 636 total offensive yards on the day, the fifth-most in a single-game in program history, while their nine touchdowns is tied for the third-most in CCU history.

UMass is the first team this season to record 300 yards or more of total offense versus the Coastal Carolina defense, totaling 329 total yards. Both teams recorded 73 total plays; however, CCU averaged 8.7 yards per play compared to UMass’ 4.5.

With his 100 rushing yards on the day, junior running back CJ Marable has now recorded three-straight 100-yard rushing games, the most since De’Angelo Henderson recorded five-straight such games in 2015.

Behind Marable’s 15 carries, 100 yards and two scores was quarterback Bryce Carpenter with a career-high 102 rushing yards on 12 carries, which included a career-long scramble of 45 yards in the third quarter. It was the first 100-yard rushing game for the sophomore.

Through the air, Fred Payton was 16-for-18 for 203 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, while Carpenter was 7-for-8 for 104 yards and two touchdowns. With the 203 passing yards, Payton has eclipsed 200 yards in a single-game three times.

Freshman Aaron Bedgood led the way receiving with five catches for 54 yards and score, while Jeremiah Miller (4 rec., 62 yards) and Jaivon Heiligh (4 rec., 42 yards) each had four catches for the contest.

UMass’ quarterback tandem of Andrew Brito (14-25-1, 100 yards) and Randall West (8-11-0, 120 yards, 2 TD) combined to go 22-for-36 for 220 yards, two touchdowns and one interception on the day, connecting with eight different receivers.

On the ground, Bilal Ally scored twice, both coming in the first half, on 11 carries and 42 yards, while no other Minutemen had more than 38 rushing yards for the game.

The balanced defensive attack saw 19 different players register two tackles or more for the game, while defensive end Tarron Jackson (1.5 sacks) and Sterling Johnson (0.5 sacks) combined for two sacks on the day.

Redshirt freshman linebacker Cincir Evans registered his first career interception, while five other Chants had a pass breakup in the win.

Coastal opens up Sun Belt Conference play next Saturday at Appalachian State (3-0), which defeated North Carolina 34-31 on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. in Boone, N.C.
