COASTAL VS UAB
This is the first meeting between Coastal Carolina and UAB.
Coastal has played two current members of Conference USA -- Old Dominion and Charlotte -- and are 2-1 against them, but neither were league members when the game was played. In fact, both were FCS members, just as CCU was.
CCU fell 63-35 to then #2 Old Dominion in the second round of the 2012 NCAA FCS playoffs. Then, in Charlotte's first two years of football, Coastal defeated the 49ers 50-25 in Conway (2013) and 59-34 in Charlotte in (2014).
Coastal Carolina features two student-athletes from Alabama.
Ethan Howard is a sophomore from nearby Brookwood and the starting right tackle. He played in 10 games last season and earned three starts (Central Connecticut, Liberty and Hampton) at left tackle. In high school, Howard was a finalist for the Bryant Jordan Achievement Award, given annually by the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in conjunction with the Alabama High School Athletic Association.
Trey Carter is a redshirt freshman from Monroeville and started at right guard in CCU's 2017 opener. He was a three-time Alabama Independent School Association All-State pick, AISA Lineman of the Year in 2015.
When it was announced UAB would discontinue football, offensive lineman Daniel Anousheh (a-NEW-shey) transferred to Coastal.
Anousheh, who began his career at a junior college in his native California, played in three games as a junior with the Blazers in 2014. In his lone season at CCU (2015), Anousheh started all 12 games at left guard and blocked for All-American quarterback Alex Ross and All-American running back De'Angelo Henderson.
Anousheh graduated from Coastal in the summer of 2016 with a degree in interdisciplinary studies.
CCU AFTER BYE WEEKS
The Chants are 13-2 when coming off a bye week.
Coastal won its first four games off a bye week before losing at Furman in 2007. Coastal's other loss off a bye week came in 2012 versus then #11 Stony Brook. (Since that loss in 2012, CCU has only dropped 11 games over its last 60.)
Coastal Carolina has won five straight bye-week games, including a second-round FCS playoff win versus Richmond in 2-14, and is 5-1 after bye weeks in the Joe Moglia era.
