GAME OF THE DAY: Coastal Carolina at Campbell, 8:00 p.m.

One of the only games even streaming on Monday night, Coastal Carolina will look to go 5-0 in the Big South with a road game at Campbell. The Chanticleers are 13-3 this season and looking like a potential postseason team with a balanced offense and multiple scoring threats.


  • The SWAC has four games, including 3-0 Alabama State playing on the road at Mississippi Valley State.
  • With six games on Monday night, the MEAC has a lot of action going on. Two 3-0 teams play as Hampton is on the road at winless Florida A&M and North Carolina Central hosts Savannah State.
  • Also with three games on the evening is the Southland. Conference unbeaten Texas A&M Corpus Christi hosts Lamar and Sam Houston travels to SE Louisiana.
  • There’s one MAAC matchup on Monday as Monmouth travels to Rider. Both teams are 4-1 in the league and tied for first place along with Iona.
  • A Texas non-conference tilt is the other game of Monday night as UTSA travels to UT Pan American. Both teams have seven wins and are hovering at or around .500.
