Power 5, primetime games highlight Chants’ schedule

Six home games at a newly renovated Brooks Stadium, including a nationally televised Thursday night contest on ESPNU, along with a Power 5 matchup in the Big 12 highlight the 2019 Coastal Carolina football schedule as announced by the Sun Belt Conference office on Friday.

The Chanticleers begin their first season under new head coach Jamey Chadwell at home versus Eastern Michigan of the Mid-American Conference on Saturday, Aug. 31. One week later, Coastal will head to the Midwest for a contest at Kansas on Sept. 9, the Chants first-ever meeting against a Big 12 opponent (West Virginia was in the Big East Conference when CCU played the Mountaineers in 2010).

Coastal returns home to host Norfolk State on Saturday, Sept. 14, before trekking back north to Amherst, Massachusetts the following week on Sept. 21 to take on the UMass Minutemen for the third-straight season. The Chants are 2-0 versus the Minutemen having defeated UMass in each of the last two seasons.

CCU opens up Sun Belt Conference play on the road with the 2018 Sun Belt Conference Champions in Appalachian State on Sept. 28 prior to the Chants open week.

Following the bye week, Coastal remains in East Division play with a home contest versus Georgia State on Oct. 12, a road game at Georgia Southern one week later on Oct. 19 and then a home game versus the Troy Trojans on Nov. 2.

After the home bout versus Troy, it will be a short week for the Chants who will welcome Louisiana to Brooks Stadium for a nationally televised Thursday night Sun Belt Conference showdown under the lights on ESPNU on Nov. 7. The prime time game will be the first Thursday night contest for the Chants since defeating Liberty 42-7 at home on Nov. 17, 2016.

The final stretch begins with back-to-back road games against West Division foes Arkansas State on Nov. 16 and ULM on Nov. 23, before the Chants close out the regular season at home versus the Texas State Bobcats on Nov. 30.
