It was fairly certain the Chanticleers would make their first bowl appearance in 2020. It was only a matter of where.
The destination is Orlando, Fla. and a meeting with Liberty in the Cure Bowl to be played on Saturday, Dec. 26.
No. 9 Coastal Carolina (11-0) and No. 23 Liberty (9-1) were two of the nation’s best teams in 2020. It will be first time in the six-year history of the bowl that both teams are ranked coming in.
Liberty won the Cure Bowl, 23-16, in 2019 and it will be the first time a team has played in the event in back-to-back seasons.
This will be the 15th all-time meeting between the two programs with the series tied at 7-7.
