Chants Remain In Both AP And USA TODAY Polls For 21st Consecutive Week – Coastal Carolina Official Athletic Site

CONWAY, S.C. – The Coastal Carolina football team moved up three spots to No. 21 in both the Associated Press (AP) Top 25 and the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches polls, it was announced on Sunday.

 

With the No. 21 ranking in both polls, the Chanticleers have now been ranked for 21 consecutive weeks after breaking into the top 25 for the first time in the program’s FBS history on Oct. 18, 2020, last season.

 

The Chanticleers have been ranked as high as No. 14 in the AP Top 25 Poll and No. 15 in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll this season.

 

Coastal’s No. 14 national ranking in the final top 25 polls of the season last year in 2020 were both Sun Belt Conference records, eclipsing Appalachian State’s final rankings of No. 18 in the coaches poll and No. 19 in the AP poll in 2019.

 

In 2020, the Chanticleers were ranked as high as No. 9 in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll and No. 11 in the Amway Coaches Poll, both of which were Sun Belt Conference records, and ranked in the top 25 in both the national polls for 10-straight weeks. The Chanticleers were also ranked as high as No. 12 in the College Football Playoff rankings, also a Sun Belt record.

 

No. 21 Coastal (7-1, 3-1 SBC) will hit the road to take on the Georgia Southern Eagles (2-6, 1-4 SBC) on Saturday, Nov. 6, at 6 p.m. ET in Statesboro, Ga.
