Ranked Cajuns, but close games
Louisiana, like Coastal Carolina, is undefeated and they are ranked No. 21 in the AP Top 25 poll. They have two very close wins by a combined 5 points, which is another reason the public is running to take the points in this game. Quarterback Levi Lewis and a running attack that has multiple threats lead an offense that is putting up 28 points per game. The real story of this team is the defense. The defense ranks second in conference and 20th in the country. They recorded six takeaways and are a tough draw for any offense.
Coastal Carolina vs Louisiana predictions
Quarterback Grayson McCall is leading an incredible Coastal Carolina offense that is averaging 44 points a game, but he is a freshman and that will play a big role in the biggest game of the year. Louisiana has played tougher opponents and they have a better defense. The Chanticleers are 2-7 against the spread (ATS) against a team with a winning record. The Ragin’ Cajuns are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in October. Defense wins ballgames and that is why Louisiana will win by double-digits in this conference showdown.
