CONWAY, S.C. -- 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.
