CONWAY - The Citadel's Eric Goins kicked a 43-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Bulldogs past Coastal Carolina in the opening round of the 2015 FCS Playoffs Saturday at Brooks Stadium.

The loss ends the Chanticleers' season at 9-3, while The Citadel improved to 9-3 and will face cross-town rival Charleston Southern in the tournament's second round on Dec. 5

Three Bulldogs -- Dominique Allen, Tyler Renew and Cam Jackson -- ran for more than 100 yards as The Citadel finished with 524 of its 556 total yards on the ground. Coastal's Alex Ross finished with 415 yard and three scores through the air, while De'Angelo Henderson rushed for 101 yards on 19 carries.

Ross set CCU single-game records for passing yards (415) and yards of total offense (454) while setting CCU and Big South records with a 91-yard touchdown pass.

Coastal Carolina will be an FCS Independent next year, ineligible for postseason play as part of the transition process to the FBS level. It will join the Sun Belt Conference this summer.
