It’s tough to find a reason to think Northern Illinois will be able to contain Coastal Carolina’s offense. The Huskies rank No. 117 in opponent yards per play defensively, while the Chanticleers will enter with the second-best offense in the country nationally in terms of yards per play. If Grayson McCall plays in this game, Coastal Carolina should win this one easily.
