CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — Osharmar Abercrombie ran for 114 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns, and Coastal Carolina outlasted Bryant for a 31-21 win on Saturday.
Bryant led 21-16 after Dalton Easton’s 25-yard TD pass to Taylor Barthelette with 1:46 left in the third quarter. Patrick Champagnie’s interception of Austin Bradley on the previous play set up the Bulldogs up with good field position.
Abercrombie scored on a 46-yard run on the next possession for Coastal Carolina (8-2). The Chanticleers forced a stop, then went on a 15-play, 87-yard drive, capped with Abercrombie’s second rushing score — this one from 10 yards out with 2:16 remaining. All 15 plays were runs, with Abercrombie accounting for 56 of the drive’s 87 rushing yards.
Easton, who passed for three TDs for Bryant (4-6), was intercepted two plays later.
De’Angelo Henderson added 98 yards and two rushing scores for the Chanticleers, who had 293 yards rushing compared to just 23 passing.
