CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina is maintaining its spot in the greater college football landscape.

The Chanticleers came in at No. 16 in the latest AP Top 25 poll on Sunday. That’s up one spot from last week but is their highest position in the rankings so far this year. It also marks the 16th straight week the Chants have been ranked in the AP Poll.

Coastal also came in at No. 16 in this week’s Amway Coaches Poll.

It comes following the Chants’ 53-3 win over UMass on Saturday to round out their non-conference schedule.
