Coastal Carolina Beats Bethune-Cookman 48-24 – Will Face Montana in Missoula December 7
The Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina (11-2) beat Bethune-Cookman Saturday, November 30, 48-24 behind four touchdown passes by quarterback Alex Ross.
Coastal Carolina, from Conway, just a few miles from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, will now travel to Missoula to face the eighth seeded Montana Grizzlies on Saturday, December 7 at noon inside Washington Grizzly Stadium, where a possible record crowd of over 26,000 fans will be waiting.
The National Weather Service predicts singe-digit temperatures with a stiff breeze coming out of the Hellgate Canyon at game-time.
The Grizzlies finished the regular season at 10-2, ranked the number 4 team in the nation in the final Sports Network poll. If the Grizzlies win, their next stop will probably be Fargo, North Dakota to face the undefeated and two-time defending national champion Bison who stand at 11-0.
Montana head coach Mick Delaney has great respect for Coastal Carolina.
"They're a big team that scores a lot of points on everyone they play," Delaney said. "We'll continue with our run-first offense, that's what got us to this point."
When asked if the weather might favor Montana on Saturday, Delaney said both teams will come ready to play.
"The weather may or may not make a difference, but we'd better be ready for a good team, no matter what," Delaney said.
