  Backup quarterback Fred Payton three three touchdown passes and No. 25 Coastal Carolina won its first game as a ranked team with a 28-14 victory over Georgia Southern on Saturday. The Chanticleers (5-0, 3-0 Sun Belt Conference) played without starting passer Grayson McCall, who had an upper body injury. But Payton threw of a 24-yard TD pass to running back C.J. Marable with 8:53 remaining to break a 14-all tie and Coastal Carolina up for good. Reese White added a 20-yard scoring run to extend the Chants' margin - and likely guarantee another week in the Top 25. Payton, who started 10 games over the past two seasons, finished 15 of 28 for 252 yards. Coastal outgained Georgia Southern 382-218 and held the Eagles to 2-of-12 on third down with two interceptions by cornerback D'Jordan Strong, six tackles for loss and four sacks, including two by linebacker Enock Makonzo. A turnover on downs by Georgia Southern and late interception by Strong sealed the win. Coastal Carolina has won three Sun Belt games in a season for the first time in its four years since moving up from the Football Championship Subdivison. - AP College Football

  No. 25 Coastal Carolina will play its first game as a ranked team without starting quarterback Grayson McCall. The team said the freshman would miss the game with Gerogia Southern on Saturday because of an upper body injury. Backup and former starter Fred Payton will open at quarterback. McCall is from Indian Trail, North Carolina, and has been a big reason for the Chanticleers' rise this season. He leads the Sun Belt Conference in passing efficiency with 11 touchdowns against one interception for Coastal Carolina (4-0). McCall threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third when Coastal Carolina defeated then-No. 21 Louisiana-Lafayette 30-27 for its first victory over a ranked opponent. - AP College Football

  Through four games, McCall has completed 59 of 87 passes (68%) for 930 yards and 11 touchdowns with one interception, and is second on the team in rushing with 184 yards and three scores on 42 carries. "For me it was more of a matter of when and not if," Hertz said. "He's just too talented and he really demonstrated a ton of leadership and maturity his senior year, and I was just really hoping that would carry over into college and obviously it did." McCall, a business major, is third in college football in QB Rating (passing efficiency) behind only Alabama's Mac Jones and BYU's Zach Wilson, and is fifth in total QBR behind Jones, Florida's Kyle Trask, Clemson's Trevor Lawrence and Georgia's Stetson Bennett.

His two turnovers this season - an interception and fumble - came in the first half against Arkansas State and contributed to the Chants falling behind 7-0 and 14-7. But he showed his resiliency by completing 20 of 29 passes for 322 yards and four touchdowns and rushing for 44 yards on 17 carries in the game to lead CCU to a big 52-23 win. "He was tough," Chadwell said. "It was good to see, because the first two weeks everything was rosy for him. He was great, he's not been touched, and [against Arkansas State] he was smacked around a little bit, and he responded. His toughness I think really showed through." - Myrtle Beach Online

  Unbeaten Coastal Carolina is ranked for the first time in the program's short history. The Chanticleers from Conway, South Carolina, joined the FBS in 2017. They beat Sun Belt rival Louisiana-Lafayette last Wednesday to improve to 4-0. The loss knocked the Ragin' Cajuns out of the Top 25, but it still has been a banner year for the Sun Belt. The conference has had three of its teams ranked at one point or another. Never before had more than one Sun Belt team been ranked in any season. - AP College Football

  OCT 5 SUN BELT OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Grayson McCall, Coastal Carolina,...In only the third start of his career, the redshirt freshman connected on 20-of-29 pass attempts for 322 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. The 20 completions, four touchdown passes, and 322 passing yards were all career-highs for the young Chant quarterback who was making the third start of his career. He linked up with six different Chant receivers on the day and also rushed 17 times for 44 yards, the second-most by a Chant in the win. After Arkansas State took a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter and put the Chants behind on the scoreboard for the first time all season, McCall immediately answered with a 72-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Likely on the very first play of CCU's ensuing offensive series to tie the game up in just 12 seconds. He also led CCU on an 18-play, 94-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter that took 8:38 off the game clock. The 18-play scoring drive that took 8:38 off the clock is the longest scoring drive in terms of plays (18) and time (8:38) in CCU football history. For the game, with McCall at the helm of the offense, CCU dominated the time of possession at 41:21 to 18:39. - Sun Belt Football

  C.J. Marable could not have hand-picked a better opponent to reach a milestone against. Marable, who was shunned by Arkansas State in his recruiting process out of high school after committing to the Red Wolves, eclipsed 3,000 rushing yards in his collegiate career Saturday. Marable gained 63 yards rushing with a touchdown on 15 carries and added four receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown. He now has 3,032 rushing yards in one season at Presbyterian in the FCS and three at the FBS level at CCU. He's just 6 rushing yards shy of 2,000 at Coastal. "I feel blessed to be able to get the win and get the record against Arkansas State, obviously with what happened with me and Arkansas State, so it's a blessing to be able to do that," Marable said. - Myrtle Beach Online
