NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Christian Reyes ran for two touchdowns and over 100 yards Saturday as Charleston Southern held off Coastal Carolina for a 31-26 victory in front of a record crowd at Buccaneer Field.

Reyes ran for 22 carries and 109 yards, pushing the Buccaneers into their fourth 300-yard rushing game of the season. Charleston Southern's victory set a program record for wins and puts the Buccaneers in a position to win their first outright conference championship.

The Chanticleers (9-1, 3-1 Big South Conference) trailed 24-6 at the half, but De'Angelo Henderson ran 42 yards for a TD to pull Coastal Carolina within two TDs. A TD pass from Alex Ross to Thomas Pauciello made it a five-point game.

Charleston Southern (10-1, 3-0) held possession for 40:34 with 62 percent third down efficiency, while the Chanticleers finished with a 19:26 time of possession and 33 percent efficiency.
