Coastal Carolina rolls to 66-27 win over VMI

Devin Brown returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown and

De’Angelo Henderson followed less than two minutes later with a

49-yard run for a score as undefeated Coastal Carolina broke away

from VMI with a 22-point third quarter in a 66-27 Big South victory

on Saturday night.

VMI (1-7, 0-3) played without injured starting quarterback Eric

Kordenbrock. But A.J. Augustine had the Keydets in the game for a

half, throwing a 28-yard scoring pass to Samuel Patterson to get

VMI within 30-24 seven seconds before halftime.

The Chanticleers (8-0, 3-0), also without their injured starting

quarterback, Alex Ross, had no problem piling up points. Three QBs

played for CCU with Michael Church seeing most of the action. He

was 12-of-15 passing for 164 yards and three touchdowns, two going

to Matt Hazel. Lorenzo Taliaferro rushed for 126 yards and a score.

CCU had 502 yards total offense.
