Chants face familiar foes in upcoming football schedule

Coastal Carolina North Dakota St FootballCoastal Carolina released its 2015 football schedule on Monday, six months before the Chanticleers open its title defense of four straight Big South Conference titles.

The 13th season of Coastal Carolina football – the fourth under three-time FCS Head Coach of the Year finalist Joe Moglia – will feature some familiar foes, three new teams and a rematch of the 2010 NCAA playoff game played in Brooks Stadium.

The Chanticleers will open the season with road games at Furman (Sept. 5) and at South Carolina State (Sept. 12). Coastal escaped Furman with a 37-31 double-overtime win last season in Greenville to take a 5-1 lead in the all-time series versus the Paladins. The Chanticleers, who opened the 2013 season in Orangeburg, hold a 4-0 lead versus South Carolina State in the all-time series.

Coastal Carolina will play its home opener Sept. 19, the first of four consecutive home games, by welcoming Western Illinois. The Leathernecks’ only other meeting with Coastal came in the first round of the 2010 NCAA Division I Championship. It was the first time Coastal, or any Big South member, had hosted a playoff game. Dominique Davenport intercepted two passes for Coastal, including one for a score, but Western Illinois, ranked #21 at the time, scored a touchdown with 1:05 left in the game to win 17-10.

Bryant University, ranked among the FCS top 25 for four weeks during the 2014 season, will make its first trip to Conway on Sept. 26. The following weekend (Oct. 3), Coastal will host Alabama A&M for the first time as well.

The Chanticleers open Big South play by hosting Presbyterian College on Oct. 10.

After a bye week (Oct. 17), Coastal will hit the road for a two-game swing. The Chants will travel to West Long Branch, N.J., to face Monmouth on Oct. 24, and then make the short trip to Charleston Southern the following weekend (Oct. 31).

Coastal Carolina will play back-to-back home games in early November as Gardner-Webb (Nov. 7) and new Big South member Kennesaw State (Nov. 14) will journey to Brooks Stadium.

The Chanticleers will close the 2015 regular season on Nov. 21 at Liberty.
