Coastal Carolina football to host The Citadel in first round of FCS Playoffs next week

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina will play The Citadel in the first round of the FCS Playoffs next week, while making a fourth straight appearance in the postseason. This will also be the final year that Coastal Carolina can take part in the FCS Postseason. By moving to the Sun Belt next year, CCU football will be an FCS independent next year, not eligible for any postseason play.  

CCU finished the regular season 9-2 and second place in the Big South during its final season of competition in the conference. The Bulldogs finished 8-3 and are co-champions of the Southern Conference. They also just beat South Carolina on Saturday by a 23-22 final. 

In their lone meeting against one another, Coastal beat The Citadel last year by a 31-16 final. 

The winner of that first round game moves on to face Charleston Southern on December 5th. The Big South Champion Bucs received a first round bye and earned the eighth national seed in the postseason.

Kickoff for Coastal's game will be at 2:00 on November 28th at Brooks Stadium.
