CONWAY, S.C. -- Quarterback Matt Barr's second rushing touchdown of the game with 1:50 remaining gave Western Illinois a 17-10 victory over Coastal Carolina on Saturday in the first round of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

The Leathernecks (8-4), who finished second in the Missouri Valley Conference, will play at top-seeded Appalachian State on Dec. 4.

Barr's 5-yard winning score came three plays after he threw a 38-yard pass to Bryce Flowers moved the ball to the Coastal Carolina 7-yard line.

The Chanticleers (6-6), who finished in a three-way tie for the Big South Conference title, then drove to the Western Illinois 4, aided by two major penalties, before Kieron James picked off a pass by Zach MacDowall.

MacDowall was intercepted four times in the game, and Coastal Carolina also lost a fumble. Western Illinois was intercepted twice.
