No. 22 Chanticlee­rs thump Jayhawks



Reese White ran for 102 yards and three touchdowns, Grayson Mccall threw for two scores and ran for a third and No. 17 Coastal Carolina beat Kansas for the third straight season, 49-22, Friday night.

Hosting a Power Five team for the first time in their five seasons in the Football Bowl Subdivisio­n, the Chanticlee­rs (2-0) showed off a deep, talented offense and a relentless defense to put away the Jayhawks (1-1) in front of the largest crowd ever in Conway, S.C., at 17,697.

Mccall began the scoring with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jaivon Heiligh, then had a two-yard scoring run. Alex Spillum took a blocked punt to the house, and White ran it in from two yards out to give the Chanticlee­rs a 28-9 lead.

Kansas quarterbac­k Jason Bean, a North Texas transfer, had touchdown runs of 34 and 46 yards as the Jayhawks drew to 28-22 midway through the third quarter. But White answered with two more scores to put it away.
