Coastal Carolina entered its game at Troy on Saturday with a 10-0 record, 7-0 in the Sunbelt Conference, ranked No. 13 in the College Football Playoff poll. The Chanticleers still had hopes of representing the Group of 5 conferences in the postseason bowl lineup.

The visitors jumped to an early 14-0 lead, but with under a minute remaining in the game, they trailed the Trojans by three points.

That’s when receiver Jaivon Heiligh and quarterback Grayson McCall saved the game and kept the dreams alive.

On first down from the Troy 23-yard line, McCall found Heiligh streaking open down the middle and hit him in stride for what proved to be the deciding score.

The game winner is this week’s U.S. Farm Raised Catfish “Catch of the Week.”

For the game, Heiligh caught 11 passes for two touchdowns, including the final score. McCall completed 24 of 29 passes for 338 yards and three touchdowns.

Remember … for the tailgate tent or the pre-game party, U. S. Farm-Raised Catfish is always “the winning catch.”

The Catfish Institute, or TCI, was formed in 1986 by catfish farmers and feed manufacturers to raise consumer awareness of the positive qualities of U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish. Since its formation, U.S. per capita consumption has more than doubled.

U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is a sustainable and environmentally friendly seafood product. The National Audubon Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Environmental Defense all recommend U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish as a safe environmental choice. To find out more, visit www.uscatfish.com.
