The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers will be moving up to the FBS next season as they will be joining the Sun Belt Conference. It looks like they are already getting big games scheduled for the distant future.
According to FBSSchedules, the Chanticleers have scheduled to play on the road agaisnt the UCLA Bruins on September 16, 2023. The Chanticleers will receive $1.1 million as part of their contract for the game.
The Chanticleers have risen as a power in the FCS the last few years, which has led to them being invited and added to the Sun Belt this year. Head coach Joe Moglia has led them to three Big South Conference championships the last four years and four straight FCS playoff appearances.
There have been some pretty big upsets the last few years and I wouldn’t be too surprised if the Chanticleers pulled off a big win against the Bruins.
