1. Mistakes matter

UL was reminded the hard way just how costly one mistake can be.

Or two.

After Ragin’ Cajuns quarterback Levi Lewis threw into coverage and was intercepted by Jordan Morris late in the third quarter, Coastal Carolina needed just three plays before QB Grayson McCall capitalized to snap a 20-20 tie early in the fourth.

The 2019 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers football team represented Coastal Carolina University during the 2019 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Chanticleers were led by first-year head coach Jamey Chadwell and played their home games at Brooks Stadium.

An illegal procedure penalty on the offensive line proved costly later in the fourth for the Cajuns too, prompting UL to ultimately punt and giving Coastal Carolina the ball with five minutes and 30 seconds left.

The Chanticleers chewed up 5:22 before Massimo Biscardi hit a 40-yard field goal to give Coastal the win over UL at Cajun Field.

UL was ranked No. 21 in the Amway Coaches Poll and the Associated Press Top 25.

Coastal Carolina received votes in both polls, and both teams were 3-0 coming in, but it was the Sun Belt Conference East Division leader that pulled off the upset.

3. UL football mostly healthy

UL coach Billy Napier said before the game that the Cajuns, who hadn’t played since a Sept. 26 win over Georgia Southern in which eight starters were out, seven for COVID-19 related reasons and one, receiver Dontae Fleming, due to injury, were as healthy as they’ve been since the start of the season.

UL was without usual starting Will linebacker Ferrod Gardner for undisclosed reasons.

But the rest were back, including Mitchell. Trey Ragas got the start over Mitchell, but all three of UL’s top running backs – including Chris Smith, who injured an ankle in the Georgia Southern game – were in the backfield at different times during the Cajuns’ opening series.

4. Line changes

It still isn’t totally clear why, but it is known that UL went through with its planned offensive line shuffle.

The Carolina Panthers opened the 2019 season with a disappointing 30-27 home loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Cam Newton struggled and wide receiver DJ Moore

Usual right tackle Max Mitchell started at left tackle as expected after missing one game, for COVID-19 reasons, over Arizona State graduate transfer Zach Robertson, who started UL’s first three games there.

Carlos Rubio, who started in Mitchell’s place against Georgia Southern, opened again at right tackle, so the Cajuns must have liked what the redshirt junior did there.

What happened

McCall hit Jaivon Heiligh with a 6-yard pass, snapping a 13-13 tie and completing a 16-play, 75-yard drive that consumed 8:12 to open the second half.

UL answered with a 9-yard Elijah Mitchell TD run, and after Lewis was intercepted McCall ran in from 3-yards out. But Lewis responded with a career-long 51-yard scramble that set up a 1-yard Mitchell TD run that helped make it 27-27 before Biscardi won it with the field goal.

First half

Lewis drove UL 75 yards in 10 plays on the Cajuns’ opening drive, capping it with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Williams. Coastal Carolina answered with a 1-yard CJ Marable run, capping a 10-play, 75-yard drive of its own.

After a trade of five punts, McCall found Marable over the middle for a 13-yard TD throw with 1:03 left in the opening half. The PAT was wide right, though.

Lewis then drove UL 77 yards in nine plays, scoring himself on a well-designed 8-yard quarterback draw. Nate Snyder missed the PAT, however, clanking it off the left upright after a bad snap and leaving it 13-13.
