CLINTON – Coastal Carolina scored twice in the first two minutes of the game and rushed for a season-high 322 yards – thanks to Jah-Maine Martin's 120 and Kenneth Daniels' 100 – to lead #18 Coastal Carolina to a 48-17 victory at Presbyterian College Saturday afternoon at Bailey Memorial Stadium.

While the offense was piling up the yards, the Coastal Carolina defense shutout the Blue Hose in the second half and held them to just 57 total yards in the second half to secure the win.

Martin, a true freshman that was playing in just his second game, had 12 rushes for 120 yards with two scores. Daniels, getting his second career start, added 100 yards on 15 carries with two scores. The duo was getting their second straight game action due to the injury of De'Angelo Henderson.

Saturday marked just the fourth time in CCU history two players rushed for over 100 yards in the same game. The others were Patrick Hall (139) and Ren McKinnon (116) in 2004 versus Charleston Southern; Lorenzo Taliaferro (139) and Henderson (117) versus Charlotte in 2013 and Alex Ross (123) and Taliaferro (104) in a playoff win at Montana.

CCU quarterback Tyler Keane, who completed his first eight passes as well as a total of three two-point conversions, finished with 122 passing yards and two TDs as he completed 9-of-16 passes. True freshman quarterback Ryan Lee added 59 rushing yards and he completed his first career pass.

Coastal Carolina will conclude the season with four straight home games starting next Saturday (Nov. 5) versus Monmouth.
