The Keydets (1-7, 0-3 Big South) trailed just 30-24 at the break, on the strength of two A.J. Augustine touchdown passes in his first career start, but a Coastal (8-0, 3-0 BSC) interception on VMI's first series of the second half led to a touchdown, putting the Chanticleers up by 14. VMI then got back within 11 after a Dillon Christopher field goal, but Coastal scored the game's final 28 points to account for the final margin.

In defeat, Augustine finished 19 for 30 for 237 yards, throwing two touchdowns and two interceptions, while Derrick Ziglar posted a career-high on the ground for the second straight contest, running for 136 yards on 23 carries.
